This frame, like so many others, is different and had cigar shaped topeye ends. Built as a clubman or general use machine.
The frame is a 50cm build using Reynolds 531 butted frame tubes on Prugnat 62 S model lugs from the late 60’s early 70’s. The chainstay and seat stay bridges are straight and the latter is reinforced. There is a centre pull brake bridge. The cigar topeyes suggest a stock build which is reinforced by the lack of a rear derailleur hanger. The forks are on a plain top Vagner DP crown and there is an offside lamp boss. The steerer seems very long and I wonder if it is a replacement.
Pump pegs under the TT with offset rear brake cable guides and stops. BB rear derailleur guide and cable guide and stop on the chainstay, lamp boss on offside fork and mudguard eyes on all dropouts. Bottle bosses on DT.
Probably a 1984 build, possibly 88, now refinished. It has the Durban Road head and seat tube flag and shield transfers and autographs on the DT.
From the ebay listing:
This frame was bought off ebay for £120. I had it resprayed and chromed which cost £330. I have never put this frame together as a rideable bike and has sat there so I’m selling it. It’s a Reynolds 531 tube set and I had that marked on the upper seat tube like the original. This frame is a classic piece of cycling history, and Brummie history.
