Falcon single speed – my new ride

Its started with the 1982 Falcon Strada Racing bike I’ve received from Alex Padwa about a month ago. I’ve decided to make a single speed bicycle out of it. First the paint job, because some rust already was seen on the frame. The concept was black and white. I reconstructed the original Falcon logotype from the 60’s that was incorporated in the paint job. The assembling went trough several stages till it received its present modification, together with the Wald steel handlebar, white grips and MKS Sylvan road pedals. I’m very happy with the result, and the riding is a real joy.
