Just picked this up looks to me like a late 80`s bike. Exage gear on it and some big fat rims reynolds 500 frame but it has 531 forks a bit of an odd combination if you ask me. It a bit to big for me so might have to sell on.

let me know if you have any info on these bikes.

Cheers Brian

Cheer for that bit of info, I have been using it all week and it a nice bike but I have a new frame coming very soon and this is going to have to go, so keep your eyes open in the for sale thread for this one.

There's always room for a handbuilt Reynolds 80's gate in the stable.
