1983 Falcon Pro Aero Flyer

Cheap British Allrounder

This is the second bike I built/restored since getting back into BMXing a year ago. I picked the frame and forks up realy cheaply of the bay in a bad way after spending several years in someones back garden. These were cheap to mid range bikes built in England in the 80's. Falcon has been going for over 100 years and own several bike companies, with their flagship one being Claude Butler. This would've been a more race based allrounder but as I only had a frame and forks and loads of spares left over from the MRD Badlander build, the bike ended up as a freestyler!
I restored the frame myself and fixed all the damage on the wheels before getting them powdered. I never intended it to end up so colour co-ordinated but one thing led to another and you know how it goes! It has certainly caused mixed opinions over here but I built it for fun and she's light, quick and handles parks and street with ease and puts a smile on my face every time I take her out. Job done! Hope you like her.............
