one of the decals actually show services des courses. but back in the days Mercier put them one alot of bikes. Just marketing, comparable with bikes like Raleigh Ti Team replica's. anyway it is a really great bike with amazing bling parts on it. me like!

o so here's the better photo of the sticker

thanks for all the help with identifying the bike

so would the "service des course" sticker indicate that it could be REYNOLDS 531?

I agree that putting stickers on the bike was a marketing practice, but what makes more sense is to use those marketing methods on the lower range bikes...
it seems quite unlikely to put jewellery on cheap frame.

Anyways all the questions make it quite interesting.

Yes it does have mudguards eyelets. I can't remember exactly whether it was was top to centre or centre to centre. I'm away for next couple of weeks but I can have someone back home measure it again and then ill let you know in couple of days. I think it was centre to centre thought.

Hello. Yes the bike is still for sale. I'm based in London.
Going back to the length of the seat tube question it is 61cm from top to centre.
