Doctor Bond
The first 3 characters in the serial number on the underside bottom bracket
Is WD7, Which makes it either a 1977 or could also be a 1987
Not sure

Lovely paintwork, by C&G.
It would be 1987, because reynolds 653 did'nt come out until the 80's, + if it has'nt been modified, you don't get double water cage fittings until the 80's.
Look foward to seeing it finished.
I have noticed, there seems a lot of for sale adds, on the forum, from your good self. Dura ace is expensive stuff. :) .
Mike.

Thanks Mike For That Info
Yes i Agree On 1987
The Dura-Ace is proving to Be a Difficult Groupset to Complete
Hence The Selling Of Bits To Fund The Project
