does anyone know the difference in weight between a 753 bare frame and a 531C one of the same size.
as it seems it is the only way to tell the difference between the 2, apart from the early 753 framesets which were made in metric sizes instead of imperial.
just because it has a 753 transfer on does not mean it is !!!!!

This might help -

However, doesn't allow for weights of lugs which must vary a bit between manufacturers and designs.

Not necessarily. Raleigh 753's were 26.8 I think. You'll have to measure it.
