screw everything, i'm cycling to france. but i need a bike first. looking for something decent (531st~)but not stupendous or expensive.

also, it needs to stay together pretty good, i can't be bothered with tools.

I have a quality, large-framed (24") Saracen 531 tourer. Brooks Champion saddle; Simplex/Shimano 500 gearing; Specialities TA cranks; Berthet Lyotard pedals; Campagnolo front hub; Wolber s modele 58 Super Champion rim (front); Weinmann rear rim with Weco hub; Diamond dynamo lighting; GB forged stem; Weinmann levers and hoods; 27" wheels. It's seen a lot of action, but is in very good condition, despite a bit of surface rust here and there. I'm based in south-east London.

I've got a very large Carlton corsair, but it's got a shorter top tube... I can ride it comfortably at 6', but bigger blokes could too!
No photos till later tomorrow, as I have to fix a broken spoke and I don't have the tool for the screw on block..... Really good shape though, in bronze from 1980..... Totally original!
