Hi everyone
This is my latest restoration work on a 1963 Falcon San Remo Equipe
Just returned from a frame and fork paintwork in C&G Finishes Liverpool
This is the original colour scheme.I purchased this from a gentleman in Nantwich Cheshire.He Advised me that it was used in the Falcon team in the early 60s by riders like Albert Hitchin.
I was tempted to re-paint it powder blue which was the normal colour scheme on the San Remo model,but thankfuly restored it to it's original state.Thankfuly the gent who owned it persuaded me not to.
Anyway it will be built up to the original spec,as listed on the classic rendezvous website under the Falcon brand.it gives you a full report of the bike and components when tested in 1962
More photos of the build will follow
Anyone with any info on this,please let me know
Malc

Yes they are the early Weinmann 999 sort
It's been a struggle to find some of the components to keep the original spec,but i'm getting there.
I need to find one or two items still,a campag record seat post/Ambrossio stem and bars.

I have no additional information for you on make/bike, but I do know the bike looks very tasty.

Looks lovely, sloping crown forks are unusual to see on a bike that age, but the better for it.
