I'll have to forward some further info and links to pics later (good digicam is down for a week or so, will do some basic photos with the vid cam). Wondering if anyone knows anything about this particular model. Falcon 'Special'. Has a painted head badge 'designed by Ernie Clements'. Nice lugs, Simplex components, and 27" wheels w/high pressure tires. Classic light blue. Perhaps late 60's. Standard Falcon script decals. Cotter crank. GB alloy bar/stem, Condor seat. Probably not 531 or the like, but not gaspipe either. Looks like a mid-line city/touring bike. Good shape throughout, all original. Thanks in advance.

Bill, I may have a fix on your Falcon as it sounds like it could be an
early one made in Smethwick, Birmingham. Please check the headbadge for
an address and let me know what lugs it has - should be Nervex. If you
contact me off list I should be able to furnish an original spec, once
we have fixed the date of manufacture.
