I wonder if he ever got one - I guess the Andy Molnar or Ken McIntosh new Manxes didn’t exist at the time the article was written.

Nice reading, thanks for posting.
Obviously the article writer had never ridden a Manx, probably not any other featherbed framed Norton.
Handling is about the same on a Manx as it is on all featherbed Nortons. Difference is weight and short powerband.
Actually my first impression when I bought a little Ninja was that it behaved like a Norton, except lack of vibrations.
