STAND 30: An improved 248 c.c. o.h.v. “Stag” Model: Modified “Cruisers” and a 150 c.c. Two-stroke with Channel-steel Frame
Francis and Barnett, Ltd., Lower Ford Street, Coventry.
"The Stag" Model.—248 c.c. single-cyl. Francis-Barnett-Blackburne; dry-sump lubrication;
magneto ignition; all-chain drive;
primary chain case; 4-speed gear, with
foot control; fuel 3¼ gals.; 26x3.25in. tyres,
Price with electric lighting (solo), £45.
The 248 c.c. o.h.v. “Stag” model has been altered only in minor details. The engine is mounted vertically in the frame which incorporates several chromed-steel members. The sump, which is integral with and below the crank case is carried in two such members, and rubber strips are interposed to prevent chafing. Both tool box and battery are neatly placed behind the saddle tube. A prop-stand is fitted.
At a small extra charge a special “Stag” model, with full sports equipment, is available.
The all-enclosed “Cruisers” are better than ever. One model has the 249 c.c. flat- topped piston engine, and the other the standard Villiers. Larger tanks, friction shock absorbers and prop-stands are among the improvements.
“F/40 Plover” Model.—148 c.c. single-cyl.
two-stroke Villiers; petroil lubrication; flywheel
magneto ignition; all-chain drive; 3-speed gear,
with hand control; fuel, 2 gals.; 25x3in. tyres.
Price with electric lighting (solo), £25 10s.
The smallest machine on the stand is the 148 c.c. Villiers-engined “Plover.” The engine is of the two-port type, and direct lighting is employed.
Channel-steel members are used in the frame, which has a heavy stamped heading. The petrol tank is finished in black and chromium, and a wide-nosed soft-top saddle is fitted. A de luxe model with dynamo lighting is also shown.
