Yes they did, and it was the one that the pro's used to race on I suppose??? I remember seeing one once, but the price was about 5 or 6 times that of the one I had....

quick look around ebay has revealed this falcon one:

Interesting...

Id only be tempted by a raleigh one though... And actually would resist the temptation as I have too many bikes as it is...

What, even on the 'pro' version??? I seem to remember them being silver ano rims.... (tho I may be wrong :oops: ) surely the pro's back then would've revolted at the mere idea of running chromies.. :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:
