Saw this advertised earlier today - a few hours later and it's in the back of the car!

Lovely 531st frame with Shimano Exage 500 components. It's fairly lightweight.

Unsure what to do with it. Would love to strip it down and rebuild it, time will tell! I have a Harry Hall 653 to build first :facepalm:

When I first got it:

Just shows that sometimes less is more, nice to see one not decked out for a 1000 mile campaign!

Nice to see an actual bike appear although some upgrades would help...
