Are those decals really that significant or is it just a case of "badge engineering"? Richard Sachs was (and probably still is) fond of reminding us that 531 is a _material_ and typical frame builders could and would use different gauges depending on any number of factors.
Certainly that's the case for smaller shops. What would the story be for someone like Carlton or Raleigh?
