Description for luxury vehicle MOTO GUZZI 500cc Falcone 1954 total restoration "Bacon Slicer" none better

Affectionately known as a “Bacon Slicer “ due to the exposed open flywheel, the big brother of the 250cc Airone 
which Guzzi produced on the banks of Lake Como in Italy from 1939 to 1957 In the early 1950’s 
the Falcone was one of the most expensive motorbikes on the market costing more that a Triumph Speed Twin ! 
Early versions utilised a cast iron cylinder and head that were replaced for the 1948 model season with aluminum items. 
The sprung frame featured telescopic units, but retaining the classic friction dampening to the rear suspension. 

This Falcone was first registered on 2th February 1954 and correctly registered in the UK as an Historic Vehicle, 
so not road tax and not MOT necessary. Very low Engine and Frame numbers FAA 52  and FAA70 , 
such an easy starter due to the fact of the large flywheel that assists the momentum plus having fitted a flat slide carburetor 
has solved all the inherent starting problems of the original. 
Apart from this one modification the bike is totally standard and is almost as good as the day it 
came out the Factory on Lake Como having travelled just 6 KM since the total nut and bolt restoration. 

All the hard work has been done and all the large amounts of money required to restore a motorcycle 
to this standard have been spent and now wants for nothing. In my humble opinion, 
the Falcone is one of the most handsome motorcycles to ever be produced and I will be sad to see this bike go 
but the time has come for someone else to enjoy the company of this marvelous machine. 

 Disposing of large collection of Classic motorcycles which I will be putting on ebay
for sale over the coming weeks - so please look out for them. 

Can arrange a specialist bike courier who changes around £80 for the first 100 miles. 
Please let me have your post code for a firm delivery price.

 Any questions will be answered via the eBay ask a question facility.

  This Moto Guzzi Falcone is by far the best 
available for sale currently in the UK and for Italy for that matter.  
You will not be disappointed with this bike, I promise you. 

 The bike is currently on display in local bike dealers just south of Guildford in Surrey. 
 Viewings are very welcome
