Londoner bike, Reynolds 531 frame, any info?
I will pick the bike tomorrow.
Any info about it? Not too much info on line

The guy who's giving me the bike said it is made by the London Bicycle Company

dating note -

the model 99 chainset it wears is second generation

change from first to second occurred in 1977

if one takes the cycle to be "all of a piece" it is unlikely to be earlier than 1978

Londoner is the model. Dawes is the manufacturer.

Those components are consistent with another example recently for sale on my local CL. I suspect they're original.
