This is a nice respectful update on a classic bike. Does anyone know what model that is?

I worked in a bike shop in 1978 that sold Falcon bikes and what it is doesn't spring to mind. Not a San Remo with those fluted seat stay caps.

Nor is it an Olympic which always seems to have the round tube wrap-over seat stay detail.

Total lack of braze ons was typical Falcon, the pics don't show much fine detail of the lugs etc. Does the 531 decal have stars?

Yes, I can see the stars on the decal.

Yes, lack of braze-ons was a big feature although the front fork light bracket was a long-lasting feature of many of their frames.
