Francis Barnett Falcon loaded up

A late fifties Francis Barnett (model Falcon 74?) all loaded up and ready to travel. The rider and pillion have the jackets and helmets but the footwear leaves something to be desired! From a modern perspective it seems like the little Francis Barnett would have been overloaded and underpowered but you've got to remember that the roads of the time were fairly quiet and mostly populated by other small bikes and low powered cars like sidevalve Ford Pops that would cruise at 40mph.

Francis Barnett Falcon gets a touch of glamour.

Handsome couple all loaded up ready for their holiday.
