Hi I met two fellow members today at Newark show and I must say what a very enjoyable day we had and in a fortnights time we shall meet up again at Spalding show when two of us will be displaying bikes we would love to meet other members there so please come along and say hello. This the last call for members to join six of us in Scotland for 3 days of riding in beuatiful scenery and ride around Loch Ness in the Loch Ness rally so please get in touch to sign up for this great week of FB fun.       I am also looking for bikes to show and parade at the 1000 bikes at Mallory.                 Stuart Elkes.

The only Francis Barnetts I saw yesterday at Newark. Who knew there was a meeting of the clans there? I could have made it 4.

Cheers Colin

Francis Barnett Trials

Well the second picture is a converted falcon 58 or 67, but have my doubts if much of the first one left the FB factory ?
Alloy Whitton Tiger cub replica hubs, Holtworks tank, modern forks/yokes alloy rims etc.
The frame before it was chopped up and a new rear section created, may have started out as a FB, so will give it the benefit of the doubt and engine is still 8E based.
Looks very competitive though !
