I bought one new from K Cycles on The wirral for £750 in 1991. It came with a 7sp Campag Chorus groupset and bomb proof wolber profile rims.

It was a great bike and the frame had a very short wheelbase for a 58cm. The only downside - it was probably one of the last bikes ever to have non-indexing shifters.

The frame got a fantastic re-spray several years later by Ribble and I only sold it two years ago for £250. If only I'd known................!!!
