does anyone have experience of these frames, it is built from 531c and has Special Products Division transfers on it also 16 speed so fairly recent.
Raleigh(Suntour?) rear dropouts, it is very well made and has NO rear chain stay brace.
It has a couple of problems, gear dropout bent a bit but not badly, one top tube brake cable guide has been knocked in to the top tube probably by the handlebar? the seat post may be stuck...in short is it worth doing anything with?

531C is a nice tubeset, but it's not that exotic (say 753)

I'd get it running and use it as a winter trainer I think.
