That wrap around seat stays and the fork convince me that it's a Falcon and likely a 531 Falcon. San Remo or not, I don't know. I have a Falcon that I bought new in 1975 that's 531 with the same fork and the frame looks identical except for the lugs on mine are fancier. A check of seat post diameter would tell whether it's db or not. Mine had all the same decals as the San Remo except the San Remo decal on the chain stay.

70s Falcons were, from what I can tell inconsistently equipped and even the San Remo model appeared with several different forks and not always the same lugs. One thing, all the San Remos I've seen pictures of had some chrome on the forks at least.

Mine was a lot like that one in finish though it had those crazy metal foil stickers. Like that one, the stickers were everywhere. Paint looks pretty good, might not be original, but I don't know that.
