More Falcon Frame Info... should I?

I inquired the store owner the scoop on these New Old Stock frames and here's what I got:

(c) 1980
British Falcon Bicycle Frame NOS. " Guaranteed Built with Reynolds
**531** fork blades, stays & butted frame tubes.
Manufactured by Reynolds Limited Birmingham, England" Campagnolo drop
outs, 21" -24" Available , Red, Blue, Silver, Green, Designed by Ernie
Clements,
San Remo model, touring, fender and water bottle braze-ons. $200.00

My question is, do you folks think I should go for it? I'm new to the cycling thing but, like my DIY Audio/Stereo hobby I have a hard time NOT building things from scratch (I'm a tinkerer!)... so I thought this could be a neat winter project. I just want to make sure these are "quality" frames...

Nuff said,

Thank for all of your replies.
regards,
David J. Gereg

531 tubing and campy drop outs are big plusses.. if these are actualy nos, then it seems like a good deal. you cant beat 531 for a smooth ride

You might want to post a message to the classicrendevous.com mailing list and see what they have to say. Its still a bit 'new' for them, but they should still have a slew of info for you. They should also provide good leads for nos and nice used period-correct components if your interested.

Good luck with your project!
