Just picked up this Falcon Explorer 12 from our local auction house for principal sum of £10 plus charges so £12 in total . Looks very lightly used and in a dusty but clean condition so should clean up ok . Rear hub looks to have a 91 date code . Made with Reynolds 500 tubing so better than gas pipe and painted in a 90's colour scheme for sure . Plan is to run it as my winter commuting machine whilst i do some work on my Marin commuter over the next couple of weeks and then it will get some longer distance rides . Going to run it through out the winter doing as many miles as i can on it . First job will be to take off the light brackets , change the tyres for some others i have in the garage which hopefully will offer better protection . Other than that it will be maintained as required by yours truly .
