Decals look like they are off a Falcon Scorpio............but doesn't look like any Scorpio to me.
I have a handbuilt Falcon frame from the mid 70's but they were thinking then it wasn't economic, they kept building them for a few years more, even doing some brazing bits (the six girls who built in the 70's didn't do braze ons).
That frame looks 80's to me and by that time they were buying frames in from Taiwan and the far east...
Might be one of the last handbuilt Falcon's but not convinced..........
I'm sceptical too, for if was
653 that would make it 1986 on...additional doubts therefore.
