I've bought this frame on eBay today - I haven't viewed it as it's miles away. Sellers information is lacking too.

Anyway, I think it's high-end. Pump holder braze-on, no mudguard eyelets, chain holder lug, chrome rear seat stay, swanky rear brake bridge etc.

My Reynolds 653 Peugeot has a lot of these features too which leads me to think it's around Reynolds 531 upwards.

Pertheus CR500?

A bit too modern for me so might be wrong!

Can you get the frame number off the BB? Looks 1990 vintage to me (the cable guides under the top tube), so could be 531, 653 or even 753. The weight would help determine it, although that paint might be thick. Both my 753s weigh under 1800 g for the frame, and under 700g for the forks (58 cm). I don't have the weight for my 653 and it's doing sterling service on the turbo at the moment so not likely to strip for a while. I recorded 2015g and 595g for a 531 Pro (56 cm) but can't remember whether I took the headset cups out, so this weight might be flaky.

Good luck.
