Here you go. Two views. #1 is sort of from the back whilst #2 is from the front/top between the chain and seat stays. Let me know if you need me to look at the block to see what it is. This bike is in pretty good condition. The muck on the paint is just dust amplified by the flash.

Thanks everyone for the information and thanks Iwgo for the pictures

I went for a rummage in the basement and found an old Mavic MA2 rim fitted to a Campagnolo hub and it was fitted with a 7 speed Maillard block. The hub was set to 130 OLN so I made it 126 OLN and fitted it to the Alan, it's a perfect fit so all I need now is a nice 7 speed freewheel to fit to my newly built wheels


Yes they could be twins. Mine is dated 1080 and the serial number starts 564***

Still have a few things to sort out, the cable stop for the rear derailleur is missing so I will have to sort something out for that, also waiting on a derailleur coming from abroad as the one supplied is worn and not to my liking
