This walked in on Sunday at the swap meet. He needed money recognizing the name I bought it. Antique track bikes are easy for me but I’m very weak in knowledge on newer bikes ...it appears to be original cond...there are so many types I don’t have any idea on model or much on these.. any help/ info will be greatly appreciated.

By February 1973, Falcon produced an Eddie Merckx branded line in Merckx Molteni orange, noted on the catalogue as "Designed by Ernie Clements" and "Approved" by Merckx. These appeared in collaboration with similar Merckx branded frames by Kessel of Belgium. The firms apparently had an agreement on marketing areas, with Kessel getting Europe, and both paying royalties to Merckx.

In 74 they upgraded the tubing to 531 and the components to Campy
