A Reynolds 531C frame, forks and headset for £30. Is this a no-brainer? :? Branded "Paul Milnes" a well known bike-shop in Bradford. It is a wee bit small 54cm (21.5") but it still looks a rare bargain. Paul Milnes tells me the frame was bought in, not built, but does this matter. Judging from 531 badging it's probably early 90s. Seller says " no dents, damage or rust" and the paintwork looks great in the images...

Should I buy it? Any advice gratefully received.

You're quite right Tel. Thanks. But I've decided to give it a miss :facepalm:

If anyone else is interested you'll find it on Gumtree (Northampton).

Seller is David 07719 847 915

BTW the asking price is £40 but seller said he'd take 30
