1988 Falcon 'Majorca'

Tange No.5 cro-mo plain gauge tubing

Tange headset

SR 26.8mm seat post

Selle Italia saddle

Shimano Altus shift levers and front mech

Triplex C-Record copy rear mech

Maillard hubs on no-name eyeleted rims

Saccon levers/ brakes

SR stem, Falcon branded bars

Swallow tyres

Shimano BB

Calloy chainset


Despite its relatively large size, short top tube gives a slightly cramped ride. However, it is far livelier than I expected and look forward to a ramble around the countryside sometime soon if it survives the next sale cull.

Nice, I like the colour. My Stag rambled well so this should too.

a little more civilized for dank January days with the addition of some SKS mudguards
