Who built early 80s reynolds ridgeback mtb's

Postby jctc » 3 Jun 2012, 2:37pm

I know that for 84 onwards they came with reynolds tubesets and perhaps the cheaper cromo frames were from Taiwan?
I have a 531 model from 84/85 anyone have any scans of info/mag reviews they could forward? Can't find any info on the web were these only sold by freewheel UK
Interested in putting it together with period parts and therefore seeking a donor bike

Have you tried the retrobike forums, loads of brochure scans on the site... http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewforum.php?f=9

Did you ever find anything out?
I've just picked up a 1985 Ridgeback and I'm trying to find out the model!
