Hi guys I'm a bit of a newbie to bikes, always been in to retro cars but as the weather is nicer I thought I'd get a retro bike and cycle to work.
I do have a 1990s Peugeot Richard Virenque rep that I've had for years but it needs a large number of repairs so it was cheaper to buy a new bike!
So here she is, my Falcon Olympic:
Seems to be pretty original (other than the saddle) with weinmann brakes and shimano groupset (so presumably she's from the 80's??)
Visually she looks pretty rough with stonechips, peeling stickers, rusty bits etc, but mechanically everything is 100% spot on, so I'll be using her daily as a rolling resto I think.
I'm really quite keen to learn more about these bikes so if anyone knows anything about them, or could help me date it, I'd be really grateful!
Also, I think I got a bargain on this so I'd be interested to hear what you lot reckon it's worth...
