Moving house and downsizing my collection (Mucho tears and woe. :cry: )

Old hands may recognise this frameset.
Research has drawn a blank as to the builder of this frame but it certainly has class.
see viewtopic.php?f=23&t=362677&hilit=+mystery+machine
viewtopic.php?f=22&t=361252&p=2691723&hilit=r+o+harrison#p2691723

Size 23" seat with 22.5" top tube.
Now built up as pictured and for sale (pump not included).
Paintwork is uniformly crazed on closer inspection but it seems to be stable and has not deteriorated in the 2 years I have owned it.
Campag record crankset, front hub, shift levers. Sturmey twin cable 5 speed (friction levers make the shift a matter of guesswork but thats just part of the fun. I can provide the stem mount Sturmey shifters if required.
Brooks Professional saddle, Brand new Wienmann 27" rims, spokes and Schwalbe tyres. GB Bars, stem and brakes.
£500. Located in Southampton
NOW £400

Also could be built up with classic Campag Record groupset instead of the Sturmey hub if this doesnt float yer boat - but hey, its certainly is unique.
