531 Legge bike with Shimano 600 groupset?

531C butted frame tubes forks and stays with a shimano 600 groupset.
Is this this from the frame builder Ken Legge our of Vancover B.C? I've read a couple threads and it seems opinions of his frame building skill isn't high. That said seller $100 for the bike and I'm thinking the shimano components may be worth that price alone(with some bargaining down from asking. It looks to be a well constructed bike but my eye isn't well trained in these matters.

Also what's the size here? To my eye looks to be at least a 58cm which is what is need if I want to ride it.
Thanks!
Note: sellers pics dont have full driveside view and these are all the pics avaible.

I posted a link to this in the "are you looking for one of these?" thread Wed of last week. I caved and bought it myself yesterday in a moment of weakness. There were two ads on OfferUp for the same bike. One ad was a month old. I paid $80 so I guess that must be what it's worth as a complete bike.

Woah nice!
I guess it's been awhile then. I only saw it today thought it was new, looking again my sold ad says 4 days old.
From the cursory research I did a Shimano groupset goes from between $75-275.
I love finding bikes by smaller frame builders. To me nothing beats a bike with a person's name on it.
How does it ride?
you looking to use it as a rider or a project?

You still see the odd Ken Legge setup here on the streets of Vancouver, usually they're badged 'Ken Legge'. Interesting local micro builder.
