Repco Hotfoot

While researching information for my '85 Team Hotfoot and up-coming '82 Team Hotfoot build, I got so sick of finding information then losing it again that I started copying images of bikes, parts and advertising material into a single place. To assist others, I have reproduced this information over the following pages .. most of the information can be found on OzBMX and BMXMuseum and I am not pretending that this informtion will replace either of these valuable resources.

Please browse through all of the material I have collected:

If you have any Hotfoot information or photos, please forward them to me and I will add them to the site. I am especially interested in brochures and advertisements as these are most valuable when restoring bikes back to their original glory.

1983 - 84 Falcon Catalogue

Tim also supplied this second Falcon catalogue. As with the first catalogue (above) there is a range of bike frames here from the looptail through to the 3-Hole and plain gusset models which could place the catalogue anywhere from 1981 to 1984.

Tim has done a little research and pieced together the following timeline:

•  1890  Coventry Eagle founded making motorbikes.
•  1960s  Following the success of their Falcon series of race bicycles, Coventry Eagle changed their name to Falcon Cycles.
•  1978  Elswick Hopper Cycles bought Falcon Cycles.
•  1982  Merged as Elswick-Falcon cycles and later changed to just Falcon, but continue to use any of the names they or their merged companies owned.

This catalogue is branded with the Elswick-Falcon name suggesting that the catalogue was produced after 1982. The last page of the catalogue shows a Tioga Rhino Charge which (I believe) was made in 1983 and 1984. The other items in the photo - a DC MX1000 and some KKT AMX pedals - do not help narrow the date range as the brakes were available from the late '70s and the pedals from late 1982 onwards.
