Unique Bristol built 531pro frame. 650/700 wheels. 22.5" centre to top, (seat tube extends above top tube, I hope you can see what I mean from the pictures) 22.5" top tube. suits around 5'10" to 6'.
Many interesting design features, internal cabling, Shimano 600 canti's.
Tight clearances: running a 20mm tyre!
The wheels aren't the right period, but run well. Rear has had a spoke replaced & some cosmetic marks to rim.
The black areas of paint have surface corrosion but it's been kept dry & waxed, all tubes are sound.
I'll include the original mech & seat post. This bike is in Bristol, I would prefer buyer to collect, that way you can get a good look at it & also see alternative chainset (holey chainring) etc.

£300
