This rare 197cc Francis Barnet Falcon has been in the same family for at least 60 years. It has just two registered keepers recorded on its V5C and was registered in April 1956. Its odometer shows 41,047 miles and there's no MoT; however, as an historic bike, the Francis Barnet is now exempt from MoT-testing. The last MoT expired in April 2009 after being tested at an indicated 41,046 miles the year before. 

The bike runs and rides and, in the view of the vendor, has ‘great potential for a full restoration’. Paperwork includes the current and past V5Cs, buff logbook, invoices, Mot certificates and technical information. 

NOTE: The numberplate currently on the bike is not the one it is now registered with.
