Guys,

Looking for a nice Reynolds frame to do up. Can be anything from the late 80's and early 90's. something 531 would be cool.

Lets see what you've got :-)

Cheers,
Gio

So many questions to answer, so little brain capacity.

Mayhem was tiring and great fun, the course was....... unpleasant in parts, unridable in others and overall an absolute hoot. I only managed one lap, I was supposed to ride two (or three) but the conditions when I rode were so tough, even my son (who rode immediately after me) declined the chance of another lap.

Yates, given our recent dealings, I'm sure we could work out a price. Sizes are: Seat tube ctc 17" ctt 18" top tube ctc 22 1/4".

Paint is all original and in very good condition.

Seems like you all had a good time. I know it must have been pretty tough going but I am jealous – in a small way.

Let me have a think and I'll get back to you.

Did the package turn up?

Not yet, but most likely today. I'll let you know as soon as it does.

Hi,

Sounds intriguing. Might be a bit early for me but always happy to see some pictures to change my mind.

Is the frame by a particular maker?
