Anyone know anything about Falcon frames??BallsOut

Someone on Ebay is selling 'Falcon' frames with Reynolds 531 tubing, lugs and horiz dropouts. It's an older frame (1980's) and has never been built up before. I was thinking of buying one for a fixed gear.

Anyone have any experience with these frames? I've never heard of them before, but it looks like a decent frame for a city bike...

from a friend, makes a great FG bike. Eddy Merckx used to ride them until he found something much on e-bay? How many are being sold? SHould be a good bargain if you can get it.

They're going for about $100-$200. Almost too good to be true for a high quality reynolds steel frame, but I'll take what I can get =).

Seems like the guy has a few in stock and is selling a couple a week. Grey and Blue, the blue is going a bit higher than the grey (nicer look). Thanks for the advice, I may try to pick one up soon...

My first real road bike was a blue Falcon 105. Nice steel 531 frame. Seems like it had a relatively long wheelbase and slack angles. It was real stable and comfortable.

Had a Falcon in the mid 1970s. 531, sewups, shallow angles. Very light, and not as stiff as bikes today. But, a very good bike.
