Love the wraparound - my much loved Falcon Olympic used to have these - but the frame died a death near the seatcollar

Someone offered me an old falcon Olympic the other day, but I have enough old frames so I turned him down..is the wrapover on the falcon more of a thinner strip like the older Raleigh triumph race frames?

final pics of my built up professional, built with a mix of campagnolo croc d' aune front and rear mech, super record brake callipers, chorus chainset? chorus pedals and weinman brake levers.

seatpost is campagnolo chorus aero, saddle is brooks professional, stem and handlebar is gb hinduminium.

been a week paint is not durable, i've already chipped it 3 times, you just have to look at it wrong and the paint comes off.. a shame as the finish looks great.
