    I begged a go on one almost exactly like that one today... it was my first time on a bike with drop handlebars, it was definately a green Halfords bike, circa 1983 apparently. But it had brakes along the top bar too. Felt very strange when you normally ride a much wider handlebared hybrid bike.

    Thats an Ultegra groupset - some of it will say Shimano 600 Ultegra - got bits of 600 and Ultegra on my training bike - good stuff

    It will be a 7 speed rear (or should be)

    The wheel will have a freewheel not a cassette.
    It does say 14 on the frame so i'm guessing the bike probably originally had a 7 speed freewheel.
