From a renowned British Company with long history, a quality lightweight motorcycle powered by a 197cc Villiers engine, more expensive than the equivalent BSA but with added features including fitted battery and tool boxes, speedometer and ammeter plus a dual seat saddle.

This example is smartly presented in green with contrasting twin seats. Although no previous history is offered it is clear that a substantial restoration must have taken place by a previous owner, which included rebuild wheels with stainless steel spokes. The vendor tells us that mechanically, the Falcon is in perfect running order and ready to be enjoyed this summer; equally, it would make a super addition to any motorcycle collection. 

The lovely motorcycle comes with a current V5C registration certificate, an instruction manual and list of spare parts.
