125 Falcon ? Empty Falcon?

My guess would be a Merlin 57 with a 122cc Villiers 10D engine. Either that or someone's put a 10D in a Falcon 54 instead of the correct 197cc 6E engine. Either way, I've never heard of a 125cc Falcon!

I had been asked about this bike from a prospective purchaser and messaged the seller to let him know what he has, but apparently he would still seem to be happy to list it incorrectly ?
The bike will either be a Model 57 Merlin as said above, or else a Falcon 58 or 67 ( not 54 that is a rigid frame) that has been fitted with a smaller engine, there is a bonus you do get 2 toolboxes instead of one, albeit both are fitted sideways and the right hand one will have come from a 225 Cruiser 68/71/75
The petrol tank which appears to be held on with a cable tie at the front is from an Excelsior ! which is why it does not fit !
The original tank would tell if it was a 58 or 67 as the 67 has plastic tank badges, but my guess is it is Merlin 57, as it has the "D" shaped speedo, the 197cc bike would have had a round Chronometric instrument, but without frame numbers it is impossible to say

Didn't look like a Merlin or a Falcon so my be a bit of both or a bitsa, a bit of a cheek putting a FBOC badge on it to sell it.
