    Still no clue but that's a very interesting frame you have there. Very likely a custom builder and obviously has had at least one modification: the Campy (?) RD hanger brazed onto the trackend (AKA...

    thanks for the public service anno. I went to the first and it was rather small, but I will try really hard to be a seller at this one cause our Bay Area swap meet volume/frequency has fallen low...

    good points, all^ and that's what we can expect from an expert like Francis: he has forgotten more than I ever knew! ;)

    Actually I'd reco soaking in oxalic acid bath BEFORE any media-blasting. You might luck-out and discover it's not as bad as imagined...has happened before. Media blasting will remove the rust faster...

    maybe a pencil eraser (they come in colors besides brick red, I have black in my pile of pencils) shaped to a cone with grinder/sander and shoved into the bolt-hole.

    I did switch from 'oil" to 'grease' in mid-sentence, but I'm not a chemical engineer, and I was not trying to BS anybody, either.
    "Synthetic" is more of a marketing term than a real chemical...

    Cyclotoine, Unfortunately at first glance I don't think i have anything on your want-list, but I might have a chainring and possibly the lever hood...will check and get back by PM in the next days.

    synthetic oils and greases are (generally) produced from gasses rather than liquid petroleum or vegetable oils. Those gasses CAN include natural gas such as methane, which is both found deep in the...

    Need a few items:
    1. approx. 28t chainring (plus or minus a tooth, an inner ring for a triple) 74BCD, prefer stainless steel but alloy can work if teeth are good
    2. a 1" MTB or hybrid style quill...

    I don't have one, but seems like something you could cut yourself out of sheet stock if you have no other option...then you'd just need somebody to send you an accurate tracing (which I also don't...

    It makes your bike cost less TO MANUFACTURE...FIFY ;)
    So Trek is "positioned to leverage" those increased profits to acquire stuff...like say Bontrager, Klein and Gary Fisher.
    THAT's "investment...
  13. Wheel set FS: Tubulars with DuraAce/Mavic/Vittoria

    Selling these for a friend but I spun them and they feel smooth and appear true, look pretty good too. (I'd buy them for myself but have a surplus of wheels so no room!)
    DuraAce 7403 hubs, rear is...

    all those lug-makers (Nervex, EKLA, Haden) used to supply builders with blank lugs so they could cut their own distinctive flight of fancy into them, but the Hadens you showed in that old advert look...

    screen printed or more likely a pad-print known as a "tampo" which used to be a brandname but now is a generic term. Pad-printing is FAR more common a means to get graphics onto small components of...

    I bet John Thompson could tell you for sure (former Trek employee), but I tend to support the idea that they are very robust.

    at least the head badge holes are in the proper vertical orientation for a Falcon badge, not the typical horizontal that Carlton used...lugs and dropouts look to match the Falcon, but fork and seat...

    the Tange Levin (he probably refers to) is one the true bargains in the world of bike parts: quality and reliability for around $20, it can't be beat...looks are decent, too.

    An aside about the...

    never seen any like them before. I suspect custom-cut from blank lugs, maybe Nervex blanks but more likely from EKLA or Haden...? Some brand that British builders would have used, since I'd assume...

    ^different forkcrown to the OP's (and a bit nicer looking IMHO)
    would be good to see a clear close-up pic of the OP's forkends with no wheel installed

    measure the base OD of the steerer right above the fork crown, you have to remove the crown race if it's still on the crown, but SOMEtimes the size is actually stamped right on the crownrace. I'm...

    I don't think it's a Holdsworth/Harding or Carlton/Raleigh but not familiar enough with all the Falcons to vote. Are those round fork blades?

    the A-9 on eBay looks like it could be a great deal, but it's $19 shipping from Mexico, so...keep that in mind if you bid. This seems to be a later model/version that has cups shaped a bit more like...

    I think you have a B-10 headset, which I'm afraid is not one worth keeping IMHO, but that's your call. It may work fine for a while but eventually the plastic cups (which are Delrin) will degrade and...

    personally, I think the needle-bearing Stronglights are among the best HS ever made (tho NOT the B-10, only 'cause the plastic in that model doesn't hold up) so if all you need is one of the "races"...
