Early 1970's Falcon

Selling this early 1970's Falcon frame plus extras. Not sure of the model but frame/forks are full 531. Steerer is 22.0 and the seat tube is 27.0. I sanded down a VO seat post and Nitto stem, polished them up and they are included. Here is a listing of everything that comes with:

$325 Shipped via bike flights in the lower 48. Payment via paypal.

58cm C-T Seat tube
57cm C-C Top Tube
Falcon Frame/Fork: Reynolds 531
126mm Rear spacing
Zeus Hedset
VO Post (w/ some of the excessive length cut off)
Nitto Technomic Deluxe Stem (110mm but with Noodle handles bars sweeping back, fits like a 90/100mm stem)
46cm Nitto Noodles handle bar 26.0
Newbaums cloth tape with 3 coats of clear shellac
Suntour Superbe Brake lever with new Rustines replacement hoods
Dia Compe 610 Brakes
Brooks B17N Saddle
Suntour V-GT RD and Suntour Vx FD
New 7 speed chain
VO water bottle cages and special non rusting/scratching mounts
Suntour barcons

Everything works well. No issues. You will need cranks, wheels and a brake cable. The current cables are bit short and you can use the current rear for the fron and your new cable for the rear.

Here is a link to more pictures:

So you were running 700c wheels with Dia Compe 610 brakes? Hmm, that means 650B wheels with Dia Compe/Weinmann 750 brakes would be spot on.

I like the way you've routed the chain through the brakes. Stylish!

If this fits you and you don't buy it, you're an idiot.

You're very welcome. I won't expect any commission.

Glad it's not my size or I'd be in the same boat. What's not to love about an old reynolds frameset that can take fat tires?

I rode this bike in a slightly different set up for about 400 miles. If it were a touch smaller, I would have made it work. It has a really nice, smooth ride and climbs well considering its geometry and frame material. The round bladed for and fork crown are really cool. Pics do not do this frame any justice. You need to see it in person to really appreciate the craftsmanship as well as the unique green paint. Bummed that I could not make it work. My loss will be someone's gain. And the price is beyond fair considering the rarity of these frames in this condition.
