I'm wondering what your collective thoughts are with regard to the following bike:
The images were taken by the seller not me.
Hyperlinks to save hot-linking high resolution images.
Reynolds sticker + Lug
Full bike shot
Lugs + Head badge
Seat Post + Seat Stay lugs
Filthy 49D + Serial number
Things that jump out at me are:
Reynolds sticker - French 531? Is this just 3 tubes with hi-tensile stays and forks?
Decent looking French componentry (Larger diameter Simplex alloy seat post, Ideal saddle, Simplex shifters, Mafacs, Stronglight 49D, Alloy wheels (not sure if original), Possible evidence of tubulars at some stage due to the tyre scrapers attached to the brakes?
Lack of top tube cable braze ons.
Lack of chrome on rear stay.
Rear dropouts don't look stamped. When I zoom in enough I'm fairly confident "simplex" is written in the correct position. Mudguard eyelet noted.
My guess, French 77' PS 10.
Bike is located in Australia, in another city from me.
