MISC:   Falcon San Remo posted by: Bill Mendell on 7/24/2007 at 6:49:38 PM
I have a Falcon serial number K24263; I "rescued"
it in 1972 from a LBS after someone left it with
a deposit for "servicing" and paint; customer
never returned. I have many thousands of miles
on it including two noteworthy crashes:
a) shattered hip in 1973 and b) tracheotomy in 1977.
Can someone confirm that my Falcon is a San Remo;
and identify year of mfg.?

I have an old (mid 1970's) Browning (as in Browning Arms) 10-speed and am trying to determine if it's worth saving or should haul it to the dump. It's in good shape, but have not been able to find much information on it online. Any recommendations as to where I might find a value would be greatly appreciated.

I parted out a Browning from about that era that was a boat anchor. It was the economic equivalent of this year's $75 xmart mountain bike.

Well i wold have to see some pics.Is it a 20",24"26"or27" tire size?Is it a boys or girls bicycle?well my friend it comes down to one thing in the vintage bicycle world condision.If it was a boys 26" in mint depending on model you can expect from $450.00-$8,900 in poor shape don't hope for more than $75.00-$200.Girls bike 26" depending on model in mint $320-$1,500 possably more depends on several factors.Poor condision look for appx $50-$150.If its in good shape as is leave it don't try to restore it.Originals always get more $$$$

what model? Have you looked at the price guide on this site (which may be high IMO)? Track comparables on eBay, or look up previous results on Copake auction. Note, restoration may hurt the value.

I believe it is either an autocycle or b-6 it is rideable now the frame is a bit rusty and the wheels are as well the fenders have a few small rust dots but still shine but like i said it is rideable bothe tires still hold air but the seat is a bit torn up what would you recomend sell it as is or restore it??
