Crikey - now I feel ancient! I can still remember this bike from the Falcon brochure as a teenager. It was actually the flagship Falcon road bike, the ones with better spec than this (531 tubes or better, Shimano 105 parts etc.) were badged up as Holdsworths, though all made in the same Brigg factory of course!

1990-1991, at a guess.
