Rehoming two C&V rides

Our friend vtchuck recently put out a notice seeking new homes for some of his bikes. I visited him in the great north and brought these two great rides. Thanks Tom, and here's some pics of them in new surroundings:

I was watching @vtchuck's thread from the left coast hoping that he would find a great home for his bikes. These are two great looking bikes that definitely found a good home

I love that Falcon and sad to be at the opposite end of I-90. Great to see it in a good place.

I'm sure you will put them to good use. I like the red frame pump on the Falcon , it looks great with the bar wrap, decals, and cables. Joe

That Falcon is sweet! The idea of some of my bikes going to BF members is appealing.

In the immortal words of the late Charlie Harding of "C. Harding's For Bikes" on Westwood Bl. in Los Angeles, "A Falcon is a good English bike." That comment goes double for your new acquisition. I am a sucker for wraparound seat stays. and that color (colour? ) scheme is fabulous.

Rode the Shogun to physical therapy yesterday and took the Falcon for a lap around Central Park today. The Shogun is very comfortable and has that knack of disappearing from under me. The Falcon felt great, had good manners and drew attention from a tourist from the Napa Valley. Not as quick on the draw as my Mercian but it still felt pretty lively and no-hands stable. Great additions, I’m very pleased.
