Popular with women and both young and older riders, the light weight Francis-Barnett motorcycles were and remain easy to handle and straightforward to maintain, and new owners can gather information and seek camaraderie from excellent organisations such as the British Two Stroke Club and the Francis-Barnett Owners Club.

This charming and very original 197cc Falcon was originally supplied by W. M. Webster of Crewe. We understand that the machine was the subject of an older mechanical restoration and it remains in very good condition both mechanically and cosmetically, clearly having been well cared for throughout its sixty two year existence. The current custodian has owned the motorcycle for ten years but has decided to part with it because he admits to having far too many toys...

Supplied with RSU 978 is a copy of the Villiers operating instructions and parts list, a wiring diagram, correspondence, an RF60 registration book, a V5 document and the V5C registration certificate.
