After Christine's big sister Katrin had built herself a C652 from leftover components, and Christine was about to pass her motorcycle license, having exercised the art since her 14th birthday on various Nortons on racetracks, she dearly wanted one like her sister's. Opportunity arose when one was offered in a German secondhand vehicle site. I let a friend contact the owner who turned out to be the son of a deceased customer. This saddened me, having known his father who had been a very nice man with a great sense of humour. The son was not all too sure what he had for sale- the description mistook it for a race bike-, but still tried to tell me details about the motorcycle when I collected it. I told him not to worry- I was the manufacturer.
