Falcon Motorcycles: The Black

It took Ian Barry and nine individuals over a year to create this bike. When you see the details you'll understand why in the world of motorcycling, nothing compares to Ian Barry's creations.

"The Black Falcon was made from scratch around the engine of a 1952 Vincent Black Shadow. Everything apart from the engine, carbs and tires was designed by Ian Barry and made in house at his Falcon Motorcycles shop in Downtown LA, including the chassis, brakes, forks, tanks, and cylinders."

1946 Royal Enfield Bobber for sale

$5500 or open to bike trades. Alex in Temecula, CA is selling his 1946 Royal Enfield bobber.
Call or text him at 951-two-94-096-eight (no email). He'll send you a video of the bike running.

I love the look of this bike. A dark, race horse with a little well-earned road grime.

"I did all [the restoration and customization]. It was a military surplus bike from the late 40s. When I got it, it did not run or ride, but now is as mechanically sound as a 66 year old motorcycle can be. As far as cosmetics, it's how I found it. Was able to look up some history: The [girder] forks are stock for that year and the front brake works, but the rear is better."

"This is a Bike that you don't see everyday. 1946 Royal enfield , 500cc, 4 speed, Magneto fired, kicker. This bike is the real deal and runs great! Title in hand. Serious buyers call or text for more info."
