PEUGEOT CYCLES VINTAGE ANETO REYNOLDS 531 PRO ROAD RACE FRAME *A1*

complete with Stronglight Spidel A9 Headset and Stronglight Competition Bottom Bracket


 

Up for auction is this superb hand built vintage Peugeot Cycles Aneto Reynolds 531 Professional Road Race Frame from the 1980s. It is finished in a striking metallic grey, original Peugeot decals, chromed forks, part chromed seatstays and chainstays. The frame comes complete with an excellent and very smooth Stronglight Spidel A9 headset and Stronglight Competition English Cartridge Bottom Bracket English/ISO: 1.370 x 24.   

The Reynolds 531 Professional tubeset was the lightest version of 531 and replaced the previous Reynolds 531 SL set. It had improved weight characteristics and up to the minute design styling in the rear triangle, including new 'stiffer' chainstays and was designed to be used by professional cyclists both in road racing and time trialling. It was a direct competitor to Columbus SL and was complimentary to 753. Frames built from Reynolds 531 Professional were regularly raced by the top professionals of the time including the professional Peugeot Team in the Tour de France and one-day Classics.

This particular frame is stunningly beautifully and elegant, constructed with fine, neat brazing and lugwork. It has forged Simplex dropouts and the forks have a lovely forged sloping crown pantographed with the Peugeot "Rampant Lion" emblem.

In terms of condition it is exceptional with no rust and only very few of the small marks that one would expect of an original frame of this age. The frame is straight and true. The paint finish is rich and lustrous, the decals in great condition. It would be difficult to find a similar frame in better condition!

This lovely frame would make a superb basis for a brilliant lightweight retro build with either a top flight Campagnolo or Shimano groupset and Mavic wheels!
