Falcon San Remo and Cinelli Riding Stand

Hello Everyone , i purchased this Falcon San Remo and Cinelli Riding Stand(?) at an auction about 15 years ago . i rode it a few times after i bought it but other than that it has been sitting in the garage . i have tried to find out some info on it over the years without much luck until a few days ago when i googled it and found you guys .

i know its a San Remo from the decals but i am not sure of the exact Model # or year . and the riding stand(?) well , i have never seen one or come across any info on that .

could anyone help me narrow this down to what exactly this is and it's approximate value ? any info would be greatly appreciated.

Riding stand looks like a typical set of rollers to me.

is that what you call them ? Rollers ? i wasn't sure if i was using the right terminology or not . it does say Cinelli and Made in Italy on the lower right .

as far as the bike "Campagnola Record" is stamped on the wheel hubs and Campagnola is stamped on the crank . it has Shimano shifters with Shimano Crane GS on the rear derailleur . the pedals have Brethed Lyotard - Made In France stamped on them . and Cinelli is stamped on the handle bars .

The crank looks like Super Record Strada but hard to tell without looking at the arm. The Crane was 1st generation Dura Ace. I think late 70s before Wolber bought Super Champion, based on the rim stickers. You got a nice one. Depending on where you are $400-500 is the baseline

That's a bit of a hybrid, parts wise. Looks like the only Campagnolo parts are the cranks. It really depends on your location. I would think there are places where that bike would bring in 1k, and places where you would be lucky to get $300. You might be able to sell the rollers for $100, hard to know because they aren't offered much.

Put us down as an area where it would be hard to get $300 for that bike. I picked up a high end Falcon about a month ago, with about $150 worth of extras including shoes, pedals, tools, training stand, etc., languished on our C/L for three weeks before I finally bought it.

Will take a special buyer to buy those rollers. Many buyers now just go for the trainer stands instead. I have sold three trainers in the last month, could have sold several more if I had them (one came from the Falcon I bought).

+1 It is a Frankenbike with a mix of nice components.

I suspect that it might not be a Frankenbike As a matter of fact according to Sheldon Brown's site, those Falcons came from the factory with a mix of Shimano and Campy components.

San Remo started as full Campy Record, while lower models had a component mix. I don't know if the San Remo stayed that way over the years. Like many makers, models tended to change year to year, sometimes being improved, other times being downgraded.

Looks like a nice mid to late 70s Falcon. Had one that I bought in Miami probably in 1975. It wasn't the San Remo, but the frame was identical, as far as I can tell. The shop in Miami had a bunch of them and they were all different components. Some with some NR, some with Cinelli bars, some with tubulars, some with clinchers. The one I bought (for about $300) had a mix of NR and GS somponents. The GS crankset at the time, for example, was steel. Pretty nice for a steel crank, though. The hubs were Nuovo Tipo high flange. Looks like the same rims on this San Remo that my Falcon had. Had NR derailleurs and Cinelli Giro bars, center pull Weinmann brakes. Got my money out of that sucker -- retired it in 1997.

thanks for the info so far guys ! i suppose we can estimate this bike is a 70's Falcon San Remo . do you have any idea on the Model# ?
is it a :
Model 90, 94: San Remo, Reynolds 531 double butted
Model 96, 98: San Remo, Track Bike, Reynolds 531 double butted
Model 76: San Remo, (aka Equipe or Professional) NR, Reynolds 531 double butted ?

there is a Serial # C7799 stamped on the bottom near the base of the crank . is this a Cinelli ? i have the original seat also .

more ppics

It's definitely not a track bike. Also, it's not full Nuovo Record, either. It is Reynolds 531 double butted tubes forks and stays. If the brakes are original (Weinmann center pull) I can't imagine it being the model 76. Those brakes, though better than the Weinmann side pulls of the era, were cheap -- about $15 for the set, front and back.

Your model appears most like a model 94 based on descriptions from a couple of my catalogs. I have a parts listing catalog from the 70's and as stated various parts available for Falcons. In 74 along there were 5 versions of the San Remo. Good test for double-butted if decals missing is if seat post is 27.2. Earlier\lower end Falcons had 26.0 seat tubes.

WOW ! all the input from everyone has been really informational ! i have learned more about Falcon San Remos in the last 3 days then i have learned in 15 yrs! i believe this San Remo to be all original . i have never put a wrench on it . it is exactly the way i bought it 15 years ago . and it was FAST ! Faster than any Bike I ever rode . the rubber is dry rotted now but the rims are good . as far as i can tell the REAR Rim is true , the front is off a little , but not much . from the pics they look like Campy Super Comps .

i can provide more photos if you want to help me narrow this down and identify exact parts .

ricgre - i believe you are correct ! i think it is an Model #94 .

with alot of high end OEM Parts!

If you were close to Dallas I'd be all over those rollers.
