According to the guy from whom Dennis had bought the machine it was in perfect working order and only needed a light overhaul to restore it to its former glory. Neither Dennis nor Jackie were taken i...n by the patter. They knew very well that the bike had been stolen and was, anyway, a knocker. They had several cannibalised parts for other old Nortons stashed away in the shed, though, and Dennis had offered thirty bob for the bike which the guy had eagerly accepted, thus confirming the Hallops’ opinion that the bike had been stolen.
It lay now in pieces on an oily old tarpaulin on the ground, plugs and valves floating in jars on the bench above and its frame propped up on two little piles of bricks ready to be rubbed down and repainted. Dennis had somehow lost his enthusiasm for continuing with the job, however, and Jackie, with his torn hands gloved, could barely hold a cigarette let alone a spanner or a brush. He had spent the afternoon huddled in front of the stove, feeding it from time to time with lumps of coke that he hoisted up between his palms as clumsily as a bear trying to lift a ball.
