Built in1940 so one of the last "pre-war" bikes made by Francis Barnett. First registered in 1941.

It is a 3 speeder with a hand gear change so a little more fun to ride than some modern bikes! Kick start and drum brakes as normal with chain primary and final drive. Simple electrics and a new battery to power the lights, everything works well.

Older restoration but still nice ( Restored in the mid 80's )
