(the biggen)

i’m having a crack at this: lucky dip!

interesting ‘531 respray’ seat tube decal (that is of a different vintage/design to fork blade decal). haven’t seen this before.

It has something to do with Reynolds restricting the availability of decals without the purchase of tube sets, they released the ‘respray’ sticker sometime after the 70’s to meet demand. There’s a little story on it here; http://search.bikelist.org/getmsg.asp?Filename=classicrendezvous.11001.0057.eml

Someone needs to get that second one. Anything with mafac racers is fucking cool. IMHO.

HANDS OFF THE SECOND ONE. (no need to shout :-0 )

Just contacted the seller.

Thanks :slight_smile:

Some sizing info has been given in the questions bit.

That was me asking about size.

Yeah I fucked up with this one. Wanted it, was going to bid, got held up on skype call and totally slipped my mind. I spoke to Hillman Cycles the other day, its 56x57, Reynolds 531 built in 1975.

I hope someone here got it…

Does not compute. You need to learn the ways of the snipe

Yes, yes I do. I’d like to blame jet lag/uni/work etc, but its my own fault, I’m ok with that.
