A very wise purchase if I may say so! There were two bikes with this name, well, one was a very nice 531 Pro framset in graphite grey with chrome forks (circa 1986/7 I think)...

Image

...the other was a more mid range 501 bike with slightly more upmarket Weinmann/Sachs equipment including the famous (and rather unsuccessful) forerunner to the cassette freehub - the Sachs/Maillard Helicomatic hub. The 501 frame is better than most in that its not just the main tubes that are Reynolds, but the stays and forkblades too - very nice.

Image

PS Aneto is the name of the highest peak in the Pyrenees (mountain peaks were popular names for Pug bikes of that era - e.g. Perthus, Aravis, Tourmalet etc etc etc).

Looking at that pic to the seller still has the origanal seat which he replaced with a newer one.
May try and clean it up and refit to keep it as origanal as poss.

I also assumed that the black alloys it had on where non genuine but it looks like they were , well chuffed

Sheldon Brown on the Helicomatic Hub

No experience of them myself, but the most practical bike tool I've ever seen. :twisted:
