Holdsworths of this age seemed to come in a variety of different colours and finishes - from chrome to metallic colours to white enamel. They often have a different coloured panel on the seat and head tube and be embellished with box lining etc so its hard to give a specific answer. The decals may have been the W F Holdsworth one with the W above the F......I think. This is the way Im seeing the paint work on a Cyclone deluxe Im about to have repainted


Thanks, Im going with the WF Holdsworth with the W above the F.

Still, does anyone know how I can find specific date of manufacture (year) using the frame number? Also, is there likely to be any other information stored somewhere for a particular frame?

Thanks

It should look clasic when finished - not sure about working out the date from the number (always seemed a mystery to me) but the other location of the frame number may be the forks.
If you look at the last but one picture above,the number is clearly readable.

Yes - I should have been concentrating instead of report writing and looking at retro bike!

I was actually hoping that there is a record of the frame number saying when it was built, who it was built by, colours, etc. Did Holdsworth keep these kind of records and are they still around somewhere?
