Looks very smart. There should be a number stamped on the bottom bracket which will give the date

Thank you mate,

It didn't seem to make much sense to me or doesn't have a clear date. It's WS3000357. I read online somewhere W means workshop.

Another question if you have a second. Would you change the original tyres for new ones? Although brand "new" they seems to have very little grip. They are Michelin World Tour tyres.

Looks a lovely bike.
I would hazard a guess at late 70's early 80's because the centre pull brakes,Weinman?
As Midlife says, the frame number will indicate what year. There could also be a year stamped on the back of the brake calipers.

Generally world tour tyres are pretty good.
They may of gone hard if they have been stationary for a long time. Are they pumped up to the correct pressure?

That is a thing of beauty.

It's not a great time of year for selling bikes. I would remove the reflectors in the wheels and on the seat post and start at £250 and see what happens. Does that sound about right to the people here with more knowledge than me?

That's a lovely bike. You're not going to get a huge sum for it so I should keep it and enjoy. It's unlikely you'll see another like that. You might achieve the price suggested by @All uphill but you might not. Plus your mate might be rather upset if you sell it as I'm sure he'll have sold it to you at an advantageous price.
Yes sorry, I have no intention of selling it. Just going to ride and enjoy it. I really like it.

I was just curious in relation to the price I paid.

Thanks for reply
