Hi Guys
I purchased this bike from a work coleague some years ago,maybe early 90s.
Low and behold i sold it further on down the years.
Managed to find it last night a stone throw away from our home

What i would like to know is what year,model,is it worth restoring etc
It's all original with Shimano Exage Country Groupset

All info would be greatfuly accepted

Here are some photos for reference
I can take more photos if required and also the frame number which is stamped on the underside bottom bracket

Thanks
Malc

It's a ridgeback 601 but that's all I can tell you. I had a 691 lx briefly that was white with blue splatter paint, and a bit of pink in the decals. Very retro!

Bloody hell that brings back some memories.

These were show ponies in the old freewheel catalogues. If you could get the one for this year you'd have more info to go on.

Looks like the same groupset my old Dawes Wildcat had. Indeed a journey down memory lane.
