Plover 86 Manuals

Post  speedtwinbri on Tue Apr 05, 2016 10:48 pm

Hi, further to my recent purchase of a 1960 Plover 86 could anyone tell me where I might be able to obtain copies of the owners handbook, spares manual or even a workshop manual of some description.
Cheers, Brian.

You can get a spares book here:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Francis-Barnett-Motorcycle-Spares-List-Catalogue-Cruiser-84-Plover-86-Falcon-87-/252342412644?hash=item3ac0c7a564:g:I7IAAOSwzhVWq9Vb

A 1961 brochure here:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Original-1961-Francis-Barnett-Sales-Brochure-Covers-All-Models-Falcon-Plover-/351678034511?hash=item51e1a4f24f:g:sRIAAOSwoudW5xzC

Handbooks crop up quite often, if you check regularly on ebay you should be able to get one. The handbook is the closest you'll get to a workshop manual. There is a book (2nd edition) by JH Goddard, ex factory service manager, which may cover the Plover 86 but may not give you more info than the handbook.

EDIT: It's this one below but you will find it cheaper on ebay if you wait. The 1st edition is upto 1957 and the 2nd 1961 I think but check before you buy:

I am sad to say Dave Shaw who ran our Club Library suddenly passed away so for the short term manuals will not be available.
Once the printing kit is available we will try to get things up and running, failing that, they are available at other places eg Ebay but at a higher cost.

Thanks for that, managed to get fixed from Bruce Main-Smith. Sorry to hear about Dave Shaw. My condolances to his family.

Or you can get them through the National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham. They have an extensive library that they sell copies of.
