Hi everyone!
New bloke here just thought I'd say eyup! I'm from Middlesbrough, north Yorkshire. I've recently purchased a francis barnett falcon that came in boxes! I think the motor is an 8e but I'm fairly sure it's not the correct engine as the frame looks to have been slightly altered at some point. I'll be looking to put the correct engine back into the bike so I hope I don't annoy too many of you with heaps of questions!!
Thanks in advance guys

Welcome on board Darren Very Happy Looking forward to seeing some pics. If you have the frame number we'll be able to tell you the model and year, also what lump it should have. Engine swaps seem to be pretty common, wouldn't worry too much about it myself if its usable.
