This is an early, 1970s Aende. Most Aende's were built for time trial with a few touring and track frames built between the mid 70s to early 90s. All are custom builds.
Aende Road frame: 5 speed 120mm rear spacing. Probably Reynolds 531sl based on weight and maker's preferences. Dropouts are Campagnolo front and back and have been custom drilled and formed at the rear. All lugs have the usual Aende treatment of drilling out small holes. Frame number is 555. Maker is Pongo Braithwaite.
