Oh, great news-I had a "michelle" awhile back and loved it-wasn't 531 tho-so I take this may be a bit lighter in weight.

Just got home. A few surprises to me. The hubs are fat and say Phil on them. Shimano 600 equipped-a true 10 speed. The crank is a swagged apex (out of characture to a 531 frame to me) The wheels are concave weinmans. Rides like a dream! Fork shoulder and rear do's are chromed. Very well taken care of. It's burgandy-but almost looks black. I'm in LOVE

Hubs by themselves are probably worth at least what you paid for the bike, that's one heck of a steal.

The bike is a 1976 that I can tell from the caliper code. The front hub has a little play in it. They look strange on concave weinmanns. Waiting for better weather to see if the fuss is just I dont have a good camera, and my phone pics are just fuzzy; or Id post some pics

Don't see how to date these hubs (or model) -Even from the web page. Just "Phil" in 'script' for markings.

To add a little info on its outfitting...shimano 600-calipers, rdr (and 60 fdr) and weird shimano 'fingertip' stemmies. These are spring assist? Odd duck to me. I'd like to find a way to get them on the down tube without going to suntour ratchet. Unknown if there is a clamp for that. The freewheel is a regina 5 speed-no dork disc (don't think they came plastic then-so removed is my guess) The barwrap is cloth and basically in tatters. Pedals are those HUGE rattrap kkt's/and stated before an apex 5 swagged crank. SR neck and bars and the elusive 'GS brev' seatpost (27.2) I've seen these seatposts before on puch's-not a big fan-chunky looking swagged onto the post. The saddle is an interesting tan avocet w1-but worn to suede look by the gel cushion cover used by the previous owner. The fork shoulder is chromed. as are the rear do's and short socks on the front. (Micro adj screws on the rear) Only braze/on's are the rdr hanger and fender eyelets. Freakin FREEZIN here/want to ride it so bad...LOL Serial # if of any interest is: 5681565 I plan to change the peds/barwrap/saddle/and hopefully the shifters-(if I can find something era correct from shimano.) The seatpost also. Oh, the rims are presta drilled/pleasent surprise; but (look new) kenda tires are only 90psi/no big. It may be time to move this to a new thread.......perhaps in the spring? I'll start a new thread and be open to suggestions

If you are keeping it for yourself, by all means put dt shifters on it. If you plan to sell it, keep the stem mounted shifters, chicks dig it that way!

Glad you love it. Sure sounds like the bike I rode back in the late 70,s and early 80ís with the wheels I built. I loved it too. Just ran into this post and thought Iíd respond even though the bike has probably moved on. I built those wheels to ride cross country in 79. Should be 4 cross on the rear and 3 cross on the front. Anyway, even if Iím mistaken Iím glad for you.

I built the wheels in 1978. Donít know how long they sat in the shop before that.

Properly built wheels with Phil hubs keep rolling. Well done.

The Puch/Austro-Daimler 531 bikes built in Graz are seriously underrated - 531 throughout, silver-brazed, and really fine handling. My '76 Royal X that was missing for decades is never leaving again!

Thanks. I was delighted to discover that as of 2014 they were still rolling.

If anyone still has them and cares, they started out carrying me and a lot of touring gear from Denver to Astoria then down the coast past LA then across the Mojave and up through Yosemite and back north a ways. After that they spent the next 8 years doing more modest touring and serious bike commuting. In the early 90ís I donated the bike (and wheels) for an AIDS benefit. I have no idea what happened after that. Iím so glad that at least one other person fell in love with it.
