Hi
Yes it is a nice frame.
Not sure of year though
It has a number 51 on the b/b shell
Nice lugs,Boccama spearpoint looks like
the reynolds 531 decal looks like late 70s !!!!

My dad is one of Rourkie's best friends and he had a very similar frame built in about 1980, IIRC. The wrapover seatstay is very common on steel Rourkes and the builder was probably Paul Washington.

The shop is now managed by his son Jason and I'm pretty sure they still keep records of all custom frames made... they may be able to help if you can quote the serial number.

Brian Rourke are happy to answer questions on their frames - drop them an e-mail.

They only build frames with the wrapover seat stay, no other way. I have a late 80s Raleigh that was refinished by them a number of years back and bears Rourke decals.

Excellent, very wise choice.
Two superb quailty frames, in my humble opinion.
On second thoughts, very very bad choice, sell them to me :lol: .
keep us informed of your progress.
Mike
