JRJ (Bob Jackson) Olympic cycles

I just saw this for $65. I've emailed the seller with no response yet.

https://madison.craigslist.org/bik/6133069318.html

I've heard a bit of Bob Jackson. How was his older JRJ stuff?

This is NR, 531 double butting throughout (seller reads decal as 501).

Pic makes it look a bit small, but I think I should jump on this, no?

Parts are worth more than asking price, I would buy now and ask questions later.

You don't need to ask questions on a bike like that. Drive there fast and buy it. I picked up a 1982 Trek 720 last year for $50. I called the guy and drove half way across the state to pick the bike up.

Bob Jackson also got the rights to the Merlin (steel frames) marque following the fire in the Merlin facility. Some continued to be produced for a number of years.
