Francis Barnett Cruiser

Manufacturer: Francis Barnett
Model: Cruiser 89
Condition: Excellent (3)
Engine: 250cc
Year: 1963
Price: Sold

Recently rebuilt and reconditioned by Classic Bike Workshop, now a superb example after one of our "occasional" technicians took her under his wing and donated some valuable shed-time after years standing. One thing led to another and we completely rebuilt the whole thing; fron tto back. Bought at auction on a whim because it's so tidy and I'm a sucker for older restoration "barn finds". Lots of nice original parts; re-chromed and spoked Dunlop rims, solid tinware and good paintwork. On closer inspection however, it needed a lot of work so that's what it got. So, if you're looking for a classic two stroke twin here's a rare example of the 250cc 4T engined Cruiser twin which has just been completely rebuilt. Villiers Services had the engine and almost £1,000 later it was returned with new top and bottom ends, all new seals and bearings, rebuilt clutch and gearbox, now mechanically excellent and sounding just like new. Many other improvements as you can see in these latest pictures including new electrics, exhausts, tyre, chains etc etc. Manuals and books are with it, registration documents all in order, excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. New MOT of course, will need careful running in.
