FS: 58cm Roberts 531 touring bike

Post by shugpat »

Toured on this for many years (bought second-hand); like many FS bikes on this forum it has lived in shed for past several years. Refurbished for a wee tour of Galloway in the summer- had forgotten how comfortable it is. However, I am not going to tour anytime soon due to family commitments so it has to go.
1997 frame stamp; 58cm CTC seat tube, 57cm TT, 43cm chainstay, various scuffs/scrapes, peeling transfers, Stronglight headset
‘Shimergo’ 8-speed 12-32 set-up (left non-indexed), new Campag cableset
Solid 36-spoke non-matching Shimano/Mavic wheels, modest rim wear
Sugino chainset 48/38/24, FD Campag Mirage, RD Deore LX (new), San Marco Rolls saddle, Deore XT cantilever brakes, Shimano T400 pedals, new 32mm Schwalbe Marathons, Massload rack
Mudguards shown in pic not included (bit narrow for these tyres)

Looking for £400, located in Edinburgh. Happy to send more pics/details- PM me please

Hi Alan
It is still available. Yes I'd consider posting and reasonable offers. No damage other than to paintwork- it has various scrapes but frame is true and has no dents.
I'm 6 feet tall and it's a great fit.
Can send more photos of the cosmetic issues if you like- please send me a PM
