Description

1930 FN 348cc M70
Frame no. 139070
Engine no. 3085

Best known for its sensational four-cylinder models, FN demonstrated the same innovative spirit in the design of its singles, being among the first to adopt unitary construction of the engine and gearbox, permitting the use of gear primary drive. These were all features of the sidevalve M70 tourer, launched in 1927. A saddle tank, lengthened wheelbase, enclosed valves and a revised exhaust system were among improvements made to the M70 for 1929. This Vintage-era M70 was produced at FN's assembly plant at Aachen, Germany. Restored between 2004 and 2007, the machine is described as in 'A1' condition and offered with Isle of Man registration papers and a large file of documents to include builder's notes, parts lists, pre-war German logbook, owner's manual and photographs of the original owner.
