Here's a link to my Falcon San Remo, or what I'd THOUGHT was a San Remo Falcon, it's exactly as I recalled from my long ago youth (patina notwithstanding)


Interesting to see the examples of gaspipe bikes with the san remo chainstay transfer too, but they're still that gorgeous robin's egg blue....

I thought Falcon's best model in the 1 960s was indeed the San Remo; was it not the team bike, the one used by Albert Hitchen and John Perks on all those cool London-Holyhead races.. 240 m iles in a single day! These had full chromed rear triangle, forks and all the top end Campy bits, Weinmann brakes and rims etc. The photos posted show

Falcons that don't look like this... are they indeed "Specials" rath er than "San Remos"??
