F.N. (England), Ltd., Kimberley Road, Willesden Lane, N.W.

The four-cylinder touring model F.N. remains entirely unchanged from last year, though several new sidecars have been added to the range, including a spring wheel model. This machine is now obtainable as a sporting model, the main feature of which is a specially-tuned engine which can be guaranteed to provide speeds exceeding 60 miles an hour; the saddle, footboards, and handle-bar of the sporting model have been modified to suit its speed.

2¾ H.P. MODEL.

  • 65x85 mm. (282 c.c); one cyl. four-stroke; overhead valves; drip feed lubrication; Amac carb.; gear- driven mag.; 2-sp. gear; clutch and kick-starter; shaft drive; 26x2½in. tyres. Price £60.

This veteran lightweight has undergone very little change, as might be expected from its long and honourable history. The front fork has been redesigned, and its links are now equipped with large ball bearings. A sight feed for the drip lubrication has been brought up level with the tank on the near side, where it is extremely convenient for observation. Scintilla magnetos will be fitted for 1923. The new saddle, which is of French origin, gives a low riding position, and the mudguards are wider than formerly.
