Does anyone have any info/history on Townsend bikes?

I've just bought a Townsend Corsican 531 framed road bike on eBay, and I'd like to know a bit about them. I'm planning to do some training on it over winter, then stick a rack and guards on it and use it for a little tour next summer.

From the little I can gather on't internet, Townsend were part of (and still are) Falcon bikes. They only seem to be branded on horrible kids bikes and cheap suspension MTBs these days, but I presume they used to make decent bikes.

I'll post some pics of the new bike when I get it. If anyone could roughly date the frame that would be cool.


where there's two wheels, there's a way....
