Anyone heard of a Freddie Grubb Meteor ?Ping_Pong

Anyone heard of a Freddie Grubb Meteor ? I picked it up in a church jumble sale, was attracted by the Reynolds 531 tubing, nice lugs and ancient campag rear mech. Not bad for £20. I would love to know how old it is - it looks like it is about 50 years old or more.

Any ideas ? I might start trying to restore it, what would be a fitting groupset for such an old boy ?

What's the current exchange rate ... sounds like that price couldn't be more than about $40 US. Anything with old Campy, Reynolds 531, and lugs is easily worth three times that, and possibly far more. Even if the bike were junk, some of that ancient Campagnolo stuff will get collectors drooling.
