Faraway Falcon identification

Post  falconflyer on Wed Feb 17, 2016 6:37 am

Please could a member assist in the precise identification of one of my Francis Barnett Falcons in far away Zimbabwe.

The frame number is TMS 63713

Engine number 209A 70519

I believe the bike may be 1952 but it does have swinging arm rear suspension.

Many thanks!

Faraway Falcon

Hi, welcome to our forum, yes it is a 1952-53 Falcon 58 with a swinging arm suspension, and has the Villiers 197cc 6E engine. I can't be any more precise than that, maybe some member has a bike with a frame number close to yours. Mike

Hi Mike,

Very many thanks. The illustration you posted is exactly the same as my bike, except that mine has panniers added.

The bike is original and complete (one previous owner) but has stood for many years and does not turn over - weather seized. I have had the machine for ages myself and now want to go about restoring her to running order. Although it is pretty weathered, I will probably just 'wipe over with an oily rag' as it is so original, rather that doing a repaint.

I have 2 and a half other Falcons (one with AMC engine) and I will note the engine & frame numbers of these and also post on the site.

Peter
