Hi all,

I recently acquired this FB Falcon 122cc The only number I could get off it was 20927.The number plate says its a 1929 model but I'm not sure if it is. Any info you can share would-be appreciated.
Thanks, Chris

The chassis No suggest a 1930 model ( made between Sept 1929 and August 1930
For the 1929/30 year they were not building a 122cc machine ( there was not a 122cc engine bike until 1938 with the Snipe)
Bikes built the 1930 model year were
4B with 147cc 8c engine
15 with 196cc 1E engine
16 with 342cc 9B engine
17 Blackhawk with 196cc 2E engine
18 Falcon with 1E 196cc engine

maybe an engine No would help ? this is on the side of the crankcases on the l/hand side and the model No is cast onto the back of the Barrel in Roman numerals

Thank you for your response and valuable information JH, once I have found the engine number I will post it and try posting a pic...if I download the pictures from facebook will they appear in my post here, as I realise now my gallery is no good?
