help wanted

Post  Dickey0-1 on Sun Jan 14, 2018 11:32 pm

Hi my name is Richard,

got myself a falcon 81 that is in a very sorry state for itself, have had it a few years now and after picking up a few bits here and there, have decided that this is the year I'm going to really crack on and put the old girl back on the road.
Only issue is like I said its in a very sorry state and I need all the help I can get.
Most of the bike is there really, all be not always in the best condition.
What I could use is all the help I can get really, from knowing what bearings to use in the steering, to the best place for things like wheels rebuilt or parts.
So anyone who don't mind me hounding them for information would be really appreciated and thanks in advance:-)

steering head bearings

Post  piston 197 on Mon Jan 15, 2018 7:04 am

The bearings in the steering head consist of 2 cups and 2 cones specific to FB and not readily available, but the club have had some made and they are available through myself @ 62 per set, you will also need 19 off 1/4" ball bearings top and bottom ( 38 total) but these can be bought from any bearing stockist and sometimes cycle shops

Thanks for that most helpful. have the cones but didn't know how many or what size ball bearings I would need. Another problem I have is the frame assembly, have lots of small tubes and not really sure on what order they go, cant seam to find a nice diagram.
