1985 SB7660 Reynolds 531c


SB7660 is a very close relation to my other Randonneur, SB7657 – they are both Randonneur models and built only three frames apart from each other; probably brazed and painted at the same time. This one is built from Reynolds 531c tubing. It has beautiful original red paint. The SBDU catalogue mentioned two Randonneur models, one in 753R and one in 531c. I’ve only seen two SB Randonneurs and I have both.
