1958 Francis-Barnett 197cc Falcon

1958 Francis-Barnett 197cc Falcon
Registration no. SCA 23
Frame no. ZN86221
Engine no. 662B 4190
Founded by Gordon Francis and Arthur Barnett in 1919, Francis-Barnett became part of Associated Motor Cycles in 1947 and was joined there in 1951 by James. The two marques’ model ranges became ever more similar until the transfer of Francis-Barnett production to the James factory in 1962 ushered in an era of unashamed ‘badge engineering’. After WW2 Francis-Barnett concentrated on the production of lightweight two-strokes powered firstly by Villiers engines, though from 1957 AMC’s own power units were fitted to many models. This Model 81 Falcon has the correct Villiers 10E engine and correct engine/frame numbers for its year of manufacture. Purchased 20 years ago in its present state and not used since, it is presented in apparently good, substantially original condition. Offered with Swansea V5.
