    this is a ronald thomas bike built by my dad in the 70 on ward there is a date stamp under the crank
    most of these were 535 but all were fitted with campagnolo all not the cheep crap it wont fit properly
    and will get stuck most of the tubing used had riffling touring bikes had pump connectors on frame
    and road raging didnot so every frame with thomas was built by my father
    some decals were in thomas as well
    hope this helps you

    hi
    you cant put a cheep crap stem in it its built for campagnolo from the 70s and 80s
    my dad made these frames they where made for raging and touring made to order to fit the person
    byeing it every frame was made to fit properly
    and most of the decals had a gold outer rim the date stamp on the bottom is when it was finished
    before it was painted
    not many of these bikes are left lots have been lost
    but the small bloke in the bee gees had one made buy my dad dont know if he still has it
    a lot of riders from the morlboro cycling club in london had some made if there still going you may find info there
