I'm looking for information about this frame- it's my trusty touring bike, and I've been gradually upgrading it - next up is to convert to 700c and a modern chainset (probably sora to keep costs down)
The frame is a Falcon, and has a decal saying 'falcon' on it, but I can't find any information about falcons anywhere - no mention on Sheldon Brown of a falcon model, and scant information on Google.
The frame is steel - 25 inch, lugged. It is pretty much the only original part of the bike! It was originally a 10speed, down tube shifters, rear indexed, front friction.
So my questions:
Can anyone give me an approximate date for the frame?
Can anyone point me in the direction of a resource about falcons?
Are they a well known brand?
I'm thinking of getting the frame resprayed - is there anything I should bear in mind?
