r.e.w. reynolds frame

are these desirable bikes?

531, campy drops, campy headset, dont know what bb is yet, dura ace fc 7400 crankset, early dura ace hubs laced in 27 1/4 ma40's.

only thing i could find about these frames was a pdf of an old magazine, testimonial for the builder, who was in northampton england.

A Reynolds 531 frame is an excellent frame. Campagnolo dropouts are top-quality. And Shimano Dura-Ace is their flagship top-of-the-line group.

Now a question to you: is "r.e.w." the name of the bicycle-frame? Or does it have one? Photos help greatly.

r.e.w. Reynolds has been around for quite some time, and is an English bike frame maker. The frames were often built with Reynolds 531, but there is not a relationship between the frame maker and the tubing maker. It kind of looks like the name has been commandeered as many of the older marques have, and so gestimating quality, etc. without more information may be risky. Can you post a picture or two?

The frame dates from the early '70s based on stylistic clues (and the 27" wheelset). the parts are all over the place, but I'd betcha it was originally dressed in campy, and parts were replaced as needed throughout its history. Odds are good that you'll see a campy bottom bracket axle and cups in there, too. It's a good, big bike.

What else do you want to know?

market value?

since it doesn't fit me at all, I'm wondering what my best course is... part it out? or repack everything and ebay it in one piece. what would something like this go for?
