Each Falcon Motorcycle starts out as the raw and derelict frame and engine, of a post-war British Motorcycle. From there, every bike is built from the ground up, designed down to the last nut, bolt and bearing and then re-created over an 800+ hour-long fabrication process.
Throughout every phase of the bike build, Ian Barry gives his undivided attention, discarding all superfluous pieces, whilst hand making each of the one-of-a-kind parts that distinguish Falcon Motorcycles from the predictable pack.
Performance upgrades and modern electronics are used, but only when there is no compromise to the aesthetic or longevity of the motorcycle. The engines, they are reconditioned, re-machined and every replaceable part is refitted with a new one, in order to ensure reliability in an engine with engineering that can date back more than 50 years.
Falcon Motorcycles are machines rooted in the philosophy of pure form and function, where gaudy over engineered and overindulgent cultural trends of the minute are firmly discarded: Polished metal not chrome. Show quality paint that belongs on the streets instead of cooped up or manicured with a diaper. Tough, without black primer and gothic skulls. Edgy, fast, unaffected.
No build will be repeated.
Falcon's first motorcycle, the "Bullet Falcon" was the winner of the 2008 Legend of the Motorcycle International Concours
UK's Esquire Magazine has chosen Falcon to represent Motorcycles in the magazine's annual style 100 feature, in which the magazine chooses one hundred remarkable people, things, ideas, and places that they believe will make an impact on style, design and culture.
