Hi all,
A mountain biker here so don't know too much about this bike. It was (is) my dads, and he bought this in the 80s, and hasn't been used very much since, though my brother did some training on it in the last 5 years.

It appears to have a complete Shimano 105 groupset. The cranks have some surface corrosion that looks though it will clean up quite well.

The frame is a Reynolds 531 and has some surface rust, but in great condition overall. Wheels are absolutely fine.

Anyone know the year? Is there any interest in this type of bike as I think it is about time it moved onto someone who will love it far more than I will.

before you move it on, take it for a spin, you may become hooked!

Looks good, bit of elbow grease and she'll be great!

Counting the sprockets, it's 6 speed, which makes it 86/87.
