Evening.

Here is my 1984 Kelloggs city centre Falcon. Its a gas pipe frame but some of the bits are worth a mention.

FD. Shimano 500.
RD. Shimano 500
Brakes. Shimano 500 centre pulls
Brake levers. Weinmann
Crankset. SR custom.
Pedals. Lyotards

Its a mishmash really. All the bits are off a crash damaged Falcon Black Diamond. The bits probably deserve a better frame but its what i have.

Old Falcons often seem to ride better than the price point would suggest and have a longer top tube. If it's got steel wheels, a upgrade to alloy ones would improve the ride and save weight.
The chainset does look in good condition.
What's does it ride like?
