just bought this frame, and would be intereseted to know any info.. Branded as Flanders, it has Gipiemme dropouts and rear bridge by the looks of it.. The tubes have a bit of a 'ding' to them unlike say 653 which has quite a hollow short sound, making me think its not the highest quality steel? its reasonably light but i havent weighed it so cant tell really...BB shell has '5' stamped on it..
Any ideas?

Can't help with identifying the frame but it looks quite nice - and with a name like that it should be mine!

Especially as I used to have a ginger moustache and glasses - hi-diddly-hi neighbour! :wink:
