Help to identify bike brand

Hi all,

I have recently bought a touring bike. The frame is a Reynolds 853 Touring. 51.5 . It doesn't have lugs.
I don't know the builder's decal. Does anyone know what brand is the one in the picture?
Cheers

Urre

ImageShack still requiring signup to download, so no way to see closeups for more detail without that hassle. Thanks.

Wow, holy **** does Image Shack suck now.


I just spent 5 min trying to re-link the pix without downloading and re- hosting the images.

You can download the file and open it in your picture viewer.



As far as the bike...

The logo on the seat tube looks almost like the AT&T logo crossed with Minolta.

Are you sure it's 853? It seems odd that a bike of that level would be outfitted with Sora and Tiagra components. But that does look like a Tubus rack.

Are you sure it's 51.5 cm? That head tube looks mighty big for a bike that small (coming from a guy who rides 53-54 cm frames).

There's really not a lot to go on with these pix - if you think it's an older bike, pix of the head tube, the head tube lugs and the seat cluster (where the seat tube, seat stays and top tube all join together and the seat post is inserted)

Are the issues with Imageshack or it's something I did when posting them?let me know if I can fix it.

Yes it is an 853. I will post more photos next weekend.
There are not welding marks.
Let's see if there are not issues with this picture.

Same login screen as before for me. Try uploading directly from your computer. Save a test photo to a folder on your desktop or someplace and then select that as the location to upload from. Works for me.

I think that logo may be Panasonic.

Edit: I've searched around and don't see any Panasonic logos like that. It looks somewhat familiar to me. Hmmmm.
