I remember this bike from my youth, it was around £180 in bout 1985ish, yours looks in excellent condition. It is indeed 531 main tubes only, the saddle is new, but the brakes, gears and possibly chainset (if it's SR) are original, as possibly are the wheels.

I think it ran 73 degree parallel frame angles, and was one rung down from the Record Ace, which had 531 forks as well, and (I think) Campag Gran Sport gears - otherwise similar.

HTH


Well, I got the 73 parallel bit right, how sad is that

I just got a Clubmans Ladies bike.
Er shouldnt that be a clubwomans bike :?

I got it at the second hand bike shop near work
I got a Dawes Galaxy gents road bike. The Raleighs for spares for that.

Got 3 roadster bikes as well.
One is a mint condition Hercules Balmoral. Had one as a kid. But this is a Shimano hub model.

For £50 the lot.
