This is my June entry

A 1963 Falcon San-Remo Equipe
Reynolds 531 Frame/forks
I purchased this some months ago from a gentleman in Nantwich Cheshire
He insists it is an actual 63 Falcon Team bike,maybe a training ride.
The components are all original to the team version.
Hope you enoy

Cipo (Malc)

Looks nice Malc - but I can't see a Team Bike having that chainset (or at least the Cyclotouriste rings) TBH. I would expect to see a TA Professional adaptor chainring set at least.

However, it looks in super condition. Is it a Campag Gran Sport front mech?

Hi Old Ned
The Chainset is a Stronglight 49d (60s) i fitted these rings so i could ride it here in very hilly North wales
The front mech is the matchbox version

I don't blame you then for the rings! Very sensible precaution.

:wink:

Not really any relevance but i've changed the bottle cages to a more older looking version on cage.

I doubt if the fork is from that age. I really think it is from a later era. :wink:

I recently acquired a Crescent branded Aero seat and a sweet chrome pump for my late seventies Crescent (Swedish brand), so time to show it somewhere...

Here's the thread I made for it it BITD for those who'd like to read further: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=13601
Thanks again to Tuure for the great supply of info! :D
