the reynolds 'sl' tube set was from a preceeding era than the set inquired about in this austro daimler. the reynolds 531** 'professional' tube set differed from the 'competition' tube set in that it the three main tubes were thinner guage and the seatays were narrower diameter, making for a difference of 100 grams, or the equivilant of 100 raisins. wow. e-RICHIE in Chester **say five-three-one NOT five hundred and thirty one
