Subject: [CR]Falcon Bike

My name is Pat McHugh, a new member to CR. I live in Denver, Colorado, USA
   and have been cycling for 5 years. I enjoy riding in our great mountains and going for long distance. I have always enjoyed tinkering and restoring
   old things thus last year I bought a 78 Schwinn Traveler. I fixed it up a nd currently use it to commute to work. I found I really enjoy riding the old, heavy, (by today standards) steel bikes. This weekend I picked up a F lacon " designed by Ernie Clement" road bike. I plan to restore the bike b ut need help. I was told by the seller that the bike was made in the 60's.
    It has no markings other than the head badge and ser. # X28505 on the bot tom bracket. It sports a mix of componetry, Weinmann, Suntour and Campy wi th a B72 Brooks saddle. The saddle year is not stamped on the saddle frame . By the poor condition of the saddle I suspect it is original to the bike . I would like to find out what year it was made and what components were original. Any information or resources would be much apprecitated. Pat Mc Hugh, Denver. _________________________________________________________________ Make i'm yours.  Create a custom banner to support your cause. http://im.live.com/Messenger/IM/Contribute/Default.aspx?source=TXT_TAGHM_ MSN_Make_IM_Yours
