Hi Paul
Welcome to the Falcon club!
Myself Alan and Tony have been comparing notes about our model 67's.  All credit to Tony he's pretty well finished and it's a real credit to him (see some of the other posts). I've a way to go but mine's on the road as a rolling restoration.  

Rear wheel;  I don't have any spec sheet and it's hard to be exact about the measurement.  Looking at the sprocket side the spoke flange on the hub pretty well lines up with the outside of the rim.  On the speedo side the spoke flange is offset about 22mm (7/8") outside the rim flange if that makes sense. See sketch attached.  

Best wishes
Keith

I would have thought if the centre of your rim in exactly in line with the centre of the frame you can't be out. Same on the front equal distance between the fork legs.
Just fit the hub and rim and true it to that.

So long as you don't have to change the spokes after wheel building it's easy to bring them across. My Falcon 87 front was 1/4" to one side and was too close to the guard stay. I just undo one side say 1/4 turn and tightend the other side 1/4 and across it came.
Just do it accurately
