This is Branko’s Falcon Special. Beauty!
Year: 1972 (?)
A little bit about it:
I found this orphan on ebay. It had been converted to a single speed so I stripped it and rebuilt it from the ground up into a proper ten speed with mostly low-end Campy components. The headset, stem, handlebars, brakes, seat post and saddle appear to be original so I left them as is. The wrap around seat stays have a smaller diameter than most which, along with the 41-1/4″ wheelbase and 27″ wheels gives it a nice cushy ride. Perfect for navigating Chicago’s pothole riddled streetscape.
