In my stash I found this falcon but I can't match it with the 72-73 catalogs. I feel that it may be an earlier model. seial # x1354. It has had the bars changed and the running gear but I feel that the wheels may be original normandy hubs and nisi tubular rims. I am including a number of pictures to help find out what it can be? The freewheel is a regina corncob. The frame seems light as is it weighs only 26 #. Reynolds straight gauge? What would have been original?

Based on my limited knowledge of Falcons, I'm thinking Campagnolo derailleurs and steel clincher wheels would be original equipment. Looks like you have the original crank. Good luck with the project !
