[b]1954 Falcon headstock bearings[/b]

Post  Stan on Sun May 16, 2010 4:04 pm

I'm trying to restore a FB falcon 1954 in south west France (which is proving difficult as no-one in France appears to have heard of Francis Barnett). It's coming along well but I'm stuck reassembling the front fork headstock. I am missing one of the bearing cups. Is anyone able to tell me if these are available anywhere please or if others (like from a Bantam perhaps), might fit? Any advice would be welcome. Thanks,
Stan Barnett.

Hi Stan, I have some nos headstock bearing cups, I'm sure I can spare one if it is the right one. The one I have takes 19x1/4" bearings, the od is 50mm, and the id is 30mm. Mike Cool

Hi, Mike,
That's really good news and thank you very much. Sorry for delay in replying but have only just checked for responses to my enquiry. The Falcon is in a friend's workshop as he is an engineer with lots of tools and I don't have anywhere at my place to work on it. Just tried ringing him but he isn't in at present. Will try again later but, if your cup is the correct one, I would be most grateful to buy it from you. Will be in touch and thanks again, Stan Barnett.
