That looks lovely and clean... Are they 27x1,1/4 wheels?
Reminds me of my Clubman

531?

Hi

I recently picked up a similar looking frame. It is badged "Coventry Eagle" and has a 531 sticker. I gather Coventry Eagles were made in the Falcon factory. The seatpost diameter is 27.0 (I can insert a 27.2 seatpost about an inch before it sticks) so I suppose it must be the touring version of 531 tubing. I wonder if yours is the same. Does it have a serial number on the BB?

You've made a fantastic job of the renovation.

cheers

John
