Apparatus #1 by Facundo Falcó


The objective was not to buy anything for the bike. It had to be junk parts found in the garage. Fenders of the bike came from a 1938 Velocette, Handlebar, levers came from an old Triumph scrambler, headlight is from a 2008 Harley Street Bob with H4 bulb (finally light on the XR !!!), it runs 4.00 x 18 Bridgestones Trail Wings, on Akront anodized rims. Fuel tank comes from a donor 1971 Honda scrambler. If you look at the tail of the bike you can see the frame was curved, this was inspired by the waves from Biarritz which is one of my favorites places in the world. Facundo was also inspired by the old Hondas CR Elsinore which run Bajas. Facundo Falcó is a 41 year old surgeon from Barcelona Spain, he has been riding motorcycles since the age of 5. He currently owns a nice collection of bikes which he picked over the years, a Guzzi Le mans II, a 1965 Triumph Bonneville T120R, a 1948 Ariel Red-Hunter 500cc, a 1994 Harley Springer Bobber, a Benelli 500 Quattro and a Benelli 900 SEI.
