Firstly, what struck us was you never mentioned that JMC Classics builds and re-manufactures new Norvin and Egli Vincent motorcycles. We have permission from David Holder to remake these with an agreement in place with David to keep the market buoyant and keep the quality of the bikes to a high standard, so they will stand the test of time and hopefully hold their values. You also did not mention we are also licensed to make these bikes for sale worldwide and have agents in Australia who distribute and sell our bikes. This has grown over the years to be a good small business for all those concerned.
Secondly, you indicated a price of £55,000 for the value of one of these bikes which is misleading as it may damage the market for people who may be thinking of commissioning one of the bikes by us at JMC Classics or indeed Godet. Prices are dependent on specification; our bikes are priced for an entry level bike at £31,000 and top cafe racer model at £36,900, which is what we sell most of. This is a more true reflection of the prices.
We are in a very different market now than five years ago and I think before putting to print more information could have easily been sourced to avoid putting off potential customers.
