That is some find, nice one.

Have you dropped the forks out to see if there is a 'frame' number on the steerer?

Hi Marshalllucky

Have you still got the PMS frame and do you still use it? I would be interested to hear what you eventually decided.

Hi, Thanks for your interest in this old post . After I`d got the build finished I used the bike occasionally during the summer of 2017 only on dry days mind ! . I`d spent ages studying every photo I could find from the pages of `Cycling` from 1989 ( I bought the whole years editions on ebay ! ) and concluded it was probably Keith Reynolds bike. Anyway as is the case for many on here I always have a couple of projects on the go and decided to move it on to make space and fund other builds. I found an appreciative buyer who I seem to recall had some connection to Falcon ( I think he had worked there and still lived close to the old factory site ) Funny thing is the following year I located a Banana Falcon 753 ex team frame ( there should be a thread on here about it ) and the same chap bought it , I dont think he`s active on any forums but he was a great guy and a real Falcon enthusiast. I`ve put the last photo of the PMS before I sold it and I have to say I kind of regret selling it now ! .I did try and contact Keith Lambert who ran the PMS and Banana teams via his shop email but never got a reply :-( and saying that apologies to all for not finishing this thread earlier :oops:
