Picked this bike up last year on a whim. probably because it was my size and a 531 frame. It had been stood for 30 years in a guys front room. I've cleaned the frame up, greased and oiled, added pedals and a front wheel and tyre from my spares box. It rides beautifully. These ten speeds changes so smooth and silently. The brakes surprisingly good. The guy I bought it off had taken the Brooks saddle and seatpost off to to sell separately. I haven't got a seatpost that fits exactly so I've installed one from my spares box and fitted a homemade shim. I'm not making any money on the bike, in fact taking a small loss but I need the space. I want £80 for it. Picked up from North Manchester. If it doesn't sell at that it'll be off to the attic until I decide what to do with it.
