Just an FN tragic I'm afraid.

Now that's an interesting photo - do you know anything about it? I suspect that the two machines might be those ridden by Rex Mundy and S.B. White in the 1914 TT, but the race numbers in the photo are not those used in the race.

You can read about the FN effort in the 1914 TT race here:

Hi Dan,

Lovely photo. Unfortunately I can't help with info about your grandad, but I can tell you that he is astride a 1913 four cylinder FN in the photo - the last of the lightweight fours. This model has a clutch and a two-speed gear in the shaft drive. It looks like it might even have footrests instead of pedals - a feature of the very last of this model.

Did you notice the "FN" registration number - just lucky or did he have contacts in the right places?

Cheers

Leon
