Subject: [Classicrendezvous] Falcon Bikes?

Good Morning:

I stumbled across another bike over the weekend which I felt compelled to add to the pile in the basement. It's an early-'70s Falcon Special, 531, chrome fork, chrome 1/2 stays, Campagnolo dropouts, and little decals on either chainstay which read "Designed by Ernie Clementi San Remo". It came with a NR 26.0 seatpost, which was a vey loose fit; playing around with various seatposts seems to indicate that a 26.6 is more like it.

Can any of you help with details about Falcon, Ernie Clementi, and what permutation of 531 this might be?

thanks,
