My immediate impression was Raleigh Competition until I noticed the head lugs and the fact that the top tube fittings are tunnels, as opposed to stops, and on the wrong side. Still, it looks like it was a decent frame at one time and has Cinelli bars, Campagnolo post and Shimano 600EX/AX or Dura-Ace EX/AX headset and an unidentifiable BB with a missing lockring. Unfortunately, the saddle is mutilated. The components almost cover the asking price. The decals are 531 not 501 and the seat tube decal appears to the 3 tube version. Yet it has a Reynolds fork decal, so maybe lesser grade only in the stays. The dropouts are forged but the drive side looks wonky. There appears to be lots of rust and I can't see a hanger. It looks like it may be drewed and possibly repaired.
