Hi all,

I spotted this Elswick looking forlorn on facebook marketplace, with what looked like Campag mechs in the pic so went and had a look.

Bit of beer money later and she's mine. Too small for me so this'll be a sympathetic resto with a view to sell on - just wondered if anyone had any info on Elswick bikes. I always assumed Elswicks were quite low end bikes (tubing is 2030 which I understand to be a lower grade steel) but the Campag groupset suggested that it wasn't a bottom end bike (could've been added at a later date I guess).

Found what looks like a frame number stamped just at the top of the seat tube - I'll check that out later to try and date it.

Olympic rings suggests some sort of Olympic connection (maybe released in an Olympic year?) and the only "Prima" Elswick I can find is a Tour Anglais model.....which this isn't.

Anyone knowledgeable about these bikes to help identify what I've got here.....?

Some pics:
