This Falcon mens road bike was a project for a close friend who was very specific about their requirements. They wanted 90% new parts added and the frame shot blasted and resprayed in matte black. These level of rebuild is tricky for your average person although most harbour romantic feelings towards completing such a project on their own bike.
The respray has brought the frame and forks back to their former glory and the addition of new and serviced parts means the bike looks, rides and feels like new!
Get in touch today if you would like a custom built bike or already have the frame to build from – we can help!
