A solid Coventry based British concern dating from the 1930’s, Falcon was best known originally as the Coventry Eagle. The Falcon marque hit it’s full stride in the 1950’s to 1970’s under the management of famous British racer Ernie Clements. (that was he is the picture being kissed on the opening page of this site!)
A prestigious move in the early 70’s saw Falcon become the exclusive European and USA supplier of the Eddy Merckx brand. (At the peak of King Eddies reign in the Pro peloton!)
Falcon bikes were popular in the USA during the 1970s bike boom and most examples in this country date from that period.
