1954 Falcom Scrambler ?

Post  kevin54 on Tue Sep 11, 2012 2:03 am

Hi all I was wondering if anybody could help identify my new project.I brought this as a falcon scrambler but as far as I can see,the frame UM67965B is a series1 Falcon 67.I'm not sure if the B means blue. The engine number has a pre fix of 376A which I can't find in the list of numbers in JH Goddards book.All together I'm confused as to what I have.I'll add some photos,any help would be very much appreciated.Kevin54

Yes you are correct in your assumptions,it started life as a blue falcon 67 roadster,the engine No 376A relates to a road going villiers 8E with the 4 speed option as fitted to Falcon 67 and 70/74,obvious pointers to it not being a Falcon 72 scrambler is:
1 frame number
2 villiers carb (comp bike had AMAL)
3 angle of top mounts to rear shock absorbers
4 lack of bracing to fork lower yoke
5 home made exhaust (should cross over underneath gearbox)
6 saddle (should be a HMF racing seat)
etc.but at this time many scramblers were converted from road bikes to varying degrees of competancy,this looks to be a workmanlike replica of what many club riders were using in the 50's although not starting out as a factory comp model,JH

Thank you JH It seems as though I have a fair bit of work to do to get up to anything like a factory Falcon Scrambler.Which brings me to my next question.Does anyone have any photos of a 1954 falcon 64 scrambler,If I could track down a hmf racing seat that would be great.Thanks again for your help.Best regards Kevin

Any good Kevin? - Images from a 1954 FB brochure.







If images are cropped, then use right hand mouse button to save image as... (to your computer) and view in normal way.

Hope this helps

Kevin from the above pics you can see yours is a conversion,notable things you will have to do is replace the alloy guards with steel ,weld mounts for stays on front fork,fing amal 276 carb and manifold,remake exhaust,seat etc,dents to front of the tank,or you could just leave it as it is and enjoy it ,JH
