Hi everyone, came across a road bike branded Mirage. The only stickers on it At least that's what it appears to be at any rate. Doesn't appear to be an MBK/Motobecane Mirage. So far I can't find any info on this brand of manufacturer. The bike itself has full 531 frame/forks.

I just bought one and collected today,photo of it as it appeared on ebay and frame now I have stripped it. There were some tasty parts on it.Certainly looks like this was someones club run bike . I believe these Mirage bikes were sold in the 80`s by Madison cycles before they did the Saracens but please correct me if I am wrong . I don`t know who built the frames, there is nothing stamped on the BB shell or the dropouts but have nice touches like wheel adjusters and mine is very light, I presume this is 531 as per the first post .
