If it's early 70's then it would make sense that there are no bottle cage mounts, they weren't a standard fitment till later.

Lovely looking bike.

Doubt if its early 70s... my dad had a very similarly specced and painted 531 new from Rourke in about '82.

Looks great though!

Thanks guys for your feedback
Here's a picture of the Rourke when i received it
I must admit this is one of my favourites.
I bought this localy in North Wales a few months ago,It came with all the Campag components,although i did sell the L/F Campag hubs,should have kept them!!! :roll:
The lug lining has come upa treat,they were a grimy yellow before,i need to work on the seat tube cluster to get them nice and white
I still think it is early 70s with the original 531 seat tube sticker
and the date stamped components
It is a real joy to ride
Cipo

That just goes to show how slowly bike gear and frame design changed back then.
