    First one I have seen for 50 years my dad had 2 of these. They were scrapped years ago. Brought back a lot of memories. Great to see there is one still about. Looking at your one in mint condition They don’t seem to mention them on Francis Barnett web site

    I have a Francis Barnett Bicycle from the 1940s and looking to restore to as close to original as possible and welcome any advice regarding identifying original specifications, any and all information links along with sources of parts availability. 8153 is the stamped numbers on the crank area and S 148 is stamped on the front where the forks go through the frame. Any and all assistance in identifying and sourcing parts is greatly appreciated.
