    Thanks goes to @Easytigers for finding this one .

    Not sure of what when or how this will hit the tarmac due to a full garage etc etc.

    For time being original creamy white with a maroon section on the seat tube and a matching headstock paintwork carries a few battle scars , full 531 tubing so nice and light .

    Chromed head stock lugs , fork crown and lower section and chromed half rear stays , some of it will clean up but the forks certainly wont and nor will the fork crown .

    No idea what i am going to do yet ie 700c or 27" clinchers or tubs , single speed , 3 speed sturmey archer , 5 or even 12 speed , repaint or just clean and use as is ?????

    Got a nice single stronglight chainset and what look to be campagnola pedals and down tube shifter

    Thanks @midlife . I need to drop some wheels in and get some better pictures and also see what clearance's i have .

    Just waiting to see if it's a Woodrup built one or not as they made a lot of frames for R.E.W Reynolds back in the day .

    Is that a 49d? One of my early bikes had a set with a TA 54 ring. Very fashionable at the time.

    Not sure , not really had a good luck yet

    It's a Stronglight for sure

    Yep, 49d (d for duralumin), the logo changed a bit over the years but nothing else. People still used them for TT in the 70's :smile:

    Brucey bonus as i wasn't sure as no holes for an inner ring mounting , oh and the pedal end caps have Campagnolo stamped on them ^_^

    Well i was hoping to go and have a play tonight but no chance , so all i managed to was spray some penetrating fluid on to end of the cranks so i can try and remove the pedals and crank at a later stage

    Cranks may well have 23.2 mm extractor, a tad larger than Campag etc.

    Found a spare hour this afternoon and went in the garage for a play .

    IMG_20180310_163256326.jpg IMG_20180310_163328495_BURST000_COVER.jpg


    Dropped the forks out and both stampings that are on the bottom bracket are on the steerer tube.

    Need to sort a thinwall socket of the right size to remove the crank bolt's then I can try and get the cranks off .

    Had time to drop a set of 27" wheels in just to get an idea .

    Just had confirmation that this is not one of the Woodrup built frames so I wonder who did .

    Had a suggestion earlier that Cottingham Reid built some frames for R E W Reynolds
