Not if it is quite an early one built from Reynolds 753 metric tubing - these take 26.8 or 27.0mm. The one I picked up yesterday that had been Ebay.co.uk I think dates from 1978 or so and has a 27.0mm pin. I am not quite certain when Reynolds started manufacturing Imperial sized 753 tubing - I should think it was around 1980/1. Imperial sized tubing 753 should really be 27.4 but may be 27.2 on some frames.
