garage find. I saw this whilst picking up a falcon 531c. this bike is running on tubs and nice campag hubs. would come up a treat with a bit of elbow grease (at £200 start its out of my price league but its undeniably nice)

Something not quite right on that Nickson frame, not sure what though. I'm also not sure what model of Falcon you bought......over BB cable guides and nutted brakes means 70's usually.

£88 quid bargain though :D

Shaun the falcon I bought for £88 had 700c wheels and there's bags of clearance, which means it probably had 27" wheels originally. I prefer this as it means I can fit tyres any size up to 700x38c.


the nickson bike still up has a funny component mix (105) but the campag hubs are wonderful. that is a quality wheelset
