There seems to be some frames with and some without mudguard eyes, dependant on extact model and when made. I believe that Specs could be pretty fluid at Falcon in those days.
I have a Super Pro that's still the same spec as the brochure, but with a Super record rear mech and different saddle.
Have you already posted pics on the forum?
Any links?
I'm guessing that mine is a 1979 model, do you think that is correct?

Yes I would guess your bike is about 79 or 80. As far as I can tell early bikes did not have any rear dropout adjustment screws. I have not been able to make much sense of the Falcon numbering system.

That red one looks the same as the frame and forks I bought, thanks for sharing!

I don't think even Falcon understood their own numbering system. I worked in a bike shop that sold them and they appeared to be totally random !

Here is the latest evolution of my Millenium Falcon with shifters an lights swapped, The Jtek levers didn't feel safe enough so I fitted some Cane Creek carbon fibre aero levers. The shifters are in the classic position but suit the bike's new function - high intensity training.
The 3D printed light holders improve the grip due to their integrated "ramps".
