The downturn in the motorcycle market in the early 1920s prompted F-B to switch from producing expensive, high quality machines to the more utilitarian. First seen in 1923, the first of these was the triangulated, pin-jointed, straight-tube frame models whose novel method of construction gave rise to the ‘Built Like A Bridge’ advertising slogan.
We have A very original collectable 'Barn Find' example 'MERLIN' powered by a 148cc Villiers engine with an Albion 2 speed hand change gearbox. This 1932 Francis Barnett Merlin runs and sounds fantastic and could be ridden or restored. Sat very low on its wheels with a flat tank, lightweight frame and filled with lots of patina. Don't miss this opportunity to buy a motorcycle this rare!
