It seems I have a Saracen 1983 531 lugged frame, i'm dating this from the date stamped on the Weinmann brakes and the decals.

Has anyone got any more info on these frames? or pictures of other examples?

A continuation of Knight frames. Some early info here -

Could be quite rare?

In fairness, I think those are pretty standard design lugs (Prugnat, Haden?) used by many builders. It looks a very nice frame though.
