26.8 wouldn't be a normal seatpost size for 531c. It would be right for 531ATB but your frame is unlikely to be built from that 8-) More likely 501 I think.

Could it be another Scirocco, or a Pro Race? The Pro Race was I think white with garish bits but there's a black painted one here;

your bike pic has a different seat collar - I have a Sirroco to compare it with and they are quite different.

Looking down the seat tube, it looks like 27.0 and has been squished over the years to fit a naff 26.8 post

frame weight is around 1.6kg

The forks have Gipemme dropouts

the more I see, the more I'm convinced its like the one I referred to in my first post ... the slotted BB shell, the diamond on the top of the bb shell, the welded-on plates top of seat stays and the gipiemme ends were there. I'm confident of the late 80's 531/653 mass produced series.

looks very similar to my Raleigh Record comp 501 from the late 80s. That's a great winter bike.

Records had ovalised tubing throught the 80's and were black, this was pearlescent white.
