I personally love the generic 531/501 lugged Reynolds frames and thought that they could do with some love.

So, I though that theres enough photos on this site to start a topic and see if there are any more hiding out there.


Feel free to add some more, but to qualify, your bike needs the 3 piece 'reynolds' forks shown on each of the following:

Marmite King's recently acquired Dawes 'Wildcat'

Mr.K's Overbury's
Image

The Guv's Overbury's
Image

My mate Phil's early Saracen
Image

Dawes Ranger

Dead Rat's Dead project:

giant-one's mystery Magura mount

Raliegh Team Banana

My own Generic special:

A hand-built time trial frame by Alan Shorter from 531c, circa 1968. Note the three-quarter seat stays. Built for John Cornillie, Junior 25 champion of that year.

Called the E3 model, after the famous time trial course based on the A127 Southend Arterial Road. Photo was taken in 1982 and shows Mr Fat Ba5tard riding it:-

This was the only 531c TT frame that I ever owned. My others were Ishiwata 017 (now, there's a name!!) as well as various Columbus and 531SL ones. Never owned a 753, much to my regret! 8)

Noice!

My Dead Project has in fact just gained some wheels, bit modern for it ('97) granted but it's going to be a 7 speed cruiser / light tourer so another non-original rebuild anyway (and they'll look right from a distance). It also has a Brooks saddle and some cantis waiting patiently... so nurrr. But well done LGF, you have spurred me into action, I will get working a 'parts wanted' ad now!

EDIT, my wanted thread:

Xander - have you seen that early red Saracen around town - usually parked up outside Battery Park or the library? It's a spit of the red one on this thread, has Avid ultimate brake levers (??!) and is our size... think we should track the owner down, pronto...
