Is that a Thomson from when he was building frames near Huddersfield?

Must date from mid-80's if so.

It's a biggun!

You know i did not know there was a frame builder called Thomson I put it on there as it is my second name and I just thought it looked ok,the frame is a 60cm Falcon from the 1980,s. though.
