80's Universal branded bike anyone?

A few years back I picked up a Bob Jackson frame using 653 tubing and sent it to my brother as a bike similar to the one we had stolen back in the late 80's. I was really sure it was a Jackson, until he told me it wasn't and was in fact a Universal. Then the memories flooded back and have been looking for one since. I recall it was purchased by mail order in the back of a bicycling magazine, though can't remember the name of the magazine. Do remember the frame was 531, simple lug work, made in England and was a faint blue finish. Anyone remember this one or have/had the same frame? If some one has a collections of late 80s mags, could you load a photo of the ad if found? Thanks
