Dont think they ever made a frame with SLX, it looks more like the Chorus 753

They did infact sell an SLX framed model in Europe in 1991/1992, it was also offered as a frame only here in the UK as part of the 1991/1992 model year...same colours as the 753 chorus.

This is most definitely SLX due to the helicoil ribbing evident when I rammed my finger up the chainstays and seattube...oooo eerrr matron!

Frame No is - 0042590
Rear O.L.D 130mm on this too.

A nice compliment to my Record equipped 992 in sig

Out of interest, what seatpost size is this? and also whats the rear O.L.D of yours- I was expecting it to be 126mm for the most part of a 7 speed Chorus groupset I've got for it, however its actually a solid 130mm so looks like I may have to rethink the groupset aspect, maybe 8 speed newer chorus so I can at least use the wheels out of my 992...I must also add better pics!

Mavic 501 is adjustable to either 126mm or 130mm

Cheers for post size. Well my Record 8 speed cassette hub wheel @ 130mm fits perfectly but my Chorus threaded freewheel wheel @126mm is like 'sausage up an alley' in there....so I am where I am - At least I can use one set of wheels for both bikes.
