Falcon 67 Footpegs

Falcon 67 Footpegs

Post  Brentis1 on Sat Jun 30, 2018 2:42 am

Hi Gents,
Could someone possibly post me a photo of the Falcon model 67 foot pegs (on or off the bike doesn't matter). I have a strong suspicion the ones on my bike are not original and have been made out of a bit of flat bar bent in someone's garage. If they are not right I would like to replace!
Cheers
Brent

Gents,
I managed to track down a service manual on line which shows the pegs and as the attached photos show I think they are factory. One can only describe that as “all function and no form”. Definitely no Italian design team involved in these.

Cheers

Brent

footrest

Post  Bigjim on Sun Jul 01, 2018 11:06 am

looking on the net and this image, it looks like the rubbers are standard AMC round ones, with the 14mm hole, about £9 off eBay. here's what my 1955 spares list shows.
If they are anything like the James of the same period, the bar is tapered at the end and the hanger is also tapered. It's just friction & the tightness of the nut that keeps them in place. On the James there are two threaded holes in the bar, this stops the bar from rotating. I don't know how FBs worked.

FOOTREST

Post  keith livingstone on Thu Jul 05, 2018 11:22 pm

Hi.  
Falcon 67 is fairly basic and the footrest is made from flat plate as per your photograph.  Big Jim has identified ones from 1955 / AMC which look as they are cast but they are newer than those used on the 67 My pic's aren't great but confirm this
Best wishes

footrests

Yes original items, these tend to wear badly and eventually the hex hole becomes round, i cut the base off the later Falcon cast footrest with the bi-hex location and weld them to the inside of the existing footrests, the spacers then need to be shortened by about 1/2" to accomodate this mod

FOOTRESTS

Post  keith livingstone on Sat Jul 07, 2018 12:01 pm

Hi Brent
Just one further thing, 
and it may just be that you've done a quick assembly before final build.  

Looking at the picture, your footrest bar seems to be hanging below the bottom loop of the frame from the side plates with a bolt through the cast tube on the frame. I was just down checking and on both on my 58 and 67 the footrest bar goes through the cast tube on the frame.  The two side plates on the bar then run across for additional fixing by the lower engine mounting bolt if that makes sense .  
This would give the footrest bar better support.        

Best wishes
Keith

footrest rubbers

Post  piston 197 on Sun Jul 08, 2018 7:47 pm

I believe Jeff hunter rubber in solihull make new rubbers, but be warned they are not great, are likely to split when fitted and the ribbing will quickly wear off if used as they should be, OK ( just ) for show , but not great for use
