The bicycle's equipment and frame certainly look very close to the Windsor Carrera Sport of this era. Have owned a couple of those. The one frame difference is the seat stay treatment. The Windsor Carrera Sport did not have this Cinelli style treatment.

Puzzled by the FALK tubing transfer. Falck is Italy's largest steel maker. Have not before seen their name written without the letter C, save for a spelling error. Wonder if the spelling is a printer's error or if the transfer is made up to suggest Falck while it is not...

There is a bit of red colour showing in the frame's chainstay dimples. Do you think it could have been originally red flambouyant and UV exposure had resulted in this greyish colour?

Sounds like you have done "due diligence" in terms of your detective work prior to posting.

Owned one Carabela. It was a green mixte likely parallel to the Windsor Carrera (not Sport) model.
