from the ebay listing for this bike:
You are bidding on a 1978 Jack Taylor Tour of Britain road bike in excellent condition. Serial # 7470. Original period correct components include vintage Mafac Racer brake calipers and Grand Compe levers, Stronglight drilled-chainring touring triple crankset, Suntour bar end shifters and front derailleur, Huret rear derailler, Campy headset, and Nitto/SR bars and stem, all in excellent condition. The frame size is 60cm seat tube x 57cm top tube, both measured center to center. This bike in this wonderful condition is quite rare, with the Mondrian-style decals and the hand painted box lining in excellent shape. The frame has the Taylor Brothers's famous hand-filed Nervex Pro lugwork and pinstriping, please see photos. The wheelset is built up with Phil Wood hi flange hubs and Weinmann silver rims. Tires are in good shape. There are certainly no rust or dents. No pedals are included. The Brooks saddle shown is NOT included, but I will offer the buyer a choice of a new Brooks or other high end saddle as its replacement.
