Anyone care to hazard a guess at todays resprayed tip find?

unusual braze-ons on the back, no markings on the drop-outs,

frame number: 'SB7336' with 59.

Very thin tubing, 531, poss 753, braze on front mech

early 80's Campag headset, suntour, Thun, Shimano mix, naff wheels (left at the tip)

Interesting lugwork.

Seatpost is 26.8mm

obviously custom build job looking at the mudguard eyes and set cluster.
Seat cluster looks like typially 80's Aende, who I think were in the Notts area. Drop em a line with the frame No.

the irony is that to fund my recent Eddy Merckx purchase - I flogged my near new Campag Record stuff....

:roll: :D

I think this will be a long term project.
