It is fully original except the tires …
The frame is in excellent condition and the paint with a nice gloss, with some scuffs/ little paint chips as usual for a bike with mileage. No dent, no corrosion – very nice.
Beautiful workmanship on this Reynolds 531 frame and fork. Crisp lugs and brazing.
Original patina – just cleaned for pictures.
A marvelous ride as well, very predictable bike. riding a nice straight line with a heavy handlebar bag or without !
Edit: it’s now an auction.
