Falcon colour scheme

Post  Unclefatbelly on Mon Jan 04, 2016 8:13 pm

I have just purchased a Falcon 87 and I am trying to identify the original colour scheme, the frame number is CF 90614 BW. I think CF is 1961, but does the BW at the end mean it was black frame,tank and white guards and toolbox covers. I am new to this restoration business and would appreciate any help.

CF is a 1961 year model Falcon 87,
The BW does mean two-tone , Black/white paintwork
I do not have a 1961 catalogue, but 62 shows white rear guard, black front guard, black upper tank , white lower tank, white upper toolbox lid, white lower toolbox lid.
Basically the white paintwork flows from the tanks lower half, across the toolbox lid top half and to the rear guard in one smooth flowing line, all other parts including rear stays are black, only exception being the wheel hub sides and brake plates which are silver.

Thanks JH I have obtained a copy of a 1961 sales brochure from VMCC which tells you the different colour schemes, seems to be different from 1962 (black frame and tank, both guards and toolbox white) unfortunately there was not a picture of it. If anyone has a picture of a black and white livery from 1961, I would appreciate a copy. TIA
