Hello, I have a frame I would like to restore to the original condition or as close to as possible. I acquired the frame back in the '70s. The condition of the paint and decals were minimal at the time and I had little info on it. Now in the digital age I hope to find more resources and pictures to get there. The frame is a Locomotief Tour de France and I believe from the ‘50s-‘60s, Reynolds 531. I believe the lugs are the best evidence and especially the seat lug and configuration. I also would like to find out the style of the decals for Reynolds 531 seat post and forks. I’m in contact with H Lloyd Cycles with that. The frame was given to me by a friend who recently passed away. We built the bike together choosing the present components. I’m not worried about replacing the components because of that. I’ll replace the worn out parts. I would greatly appreciate any info or better yet, pictures of the paint, lettering, and decals.
