I bought this on ebay a while back, it's just been sitting in my house taking up space. I was going to restore it, but just don't have the time. It's a lovely bike with a light frame (531c).

Frame size is 21 1/2"

I have put on some conti sport tyres as these where dried and cracking. New inner tubes as well. Missing cables as I removed the old ones as they where in bad condition.

Looking for 140gbp plus postage.

I didn't see that top pic till now.. If you have any more of the gears, brakes, shifters, that would be great?

I'm going to north Cornwall for the first week of the school holidays.. Might be able to do something then? Can you hang on to it for a month..

With a deposit or full payment, yes.
Here are the specs from the original catalogue. I think everything is original except the front rim. I do have the original frame pump it came with.
