A donor bike, but on closer inspection some interesting aspects.
Fillet brazed bb, stamped with six figures, Zeus Competition rear dropouts, reasonably nice lugs, was lug lined in red. Came with some rather nice Mafac centre pulls with stylish quick release adjusters and on the rear wheel a drilled(?) five speed block (can’t see a name on it yet) and a Pelissier hub
Any clues?

Had written it off as gas pipe beater. Probably is!

With the older brazed bb I was expecting something built by someone like Wally Green for a bike shop but the other pics rule that out.....
