Bob,

I believe you're correct - 753 Reynolds but bonded into aluminum lugs, built in Kent, Wash. (Wonder if you need to be 753 certified to be permitted to glue the tubes together). Whole different animal from your bike, which is the geniune Ilkeston animal only repainted. Not even KOF - unless you take that to mean "Killer Of the Flame."
