    Bill Hughes - Where's it From? How Old? Any Good?

    Hi have read many interesting articles on here- so thanks for the good work!

    Just bought myself my 1st road bike having spent the last 5 years commuting to and fro work on a hybrid. Thought i'd get an old road bike and have watched way too many bikes on ebay to no avail. I found this bike in Kings of Cycling York Rd Leeds (who i can highly reccommend for sales and service!)
    The owner said it was probably 531 tubing and the brands of the bits are: cinelli bars/campagnolo shifters and campagnolo nuovo record rear mech/mavic rims/sprint gipiemme hubs/diacompe levers and weinmann brakes- that's about all the readable labels i can see not that any of it means much- but it looks and rides well.
    Any of you know anything at all about this bike?? I llok forward to hearing your knowledge, views and opinions......

    Hello Aartface Welcome to the forums. I never heard of the brand but that means nothing there are thousands of builders I never heard of. If the bits are original it sounds like a early to mid '80 bike but it is alwasy possible the frame is newer or older. Better/more pics?
