I'm trying to identify the origin of this frameset bought on ebay last year. If has Nervex pro lugs and bottom bracket with a four figure serial number and campagnolo rear drop outs. The gap between the holes for the head badge is 57mm.

Can't see the pics, need to log in to Cycle chat, whatever that is.

Is it the same frame? Starting off blue and then painted brown.

Just measured some head badges and 57mm for Claud Butler and Freddie Grubb. Could be a Holdsworth built frame?

Look different sizes but both 57mm. Not necessarily these type of badges.

It would certainly fit 1955 to about 1960.
5/8 seat stays not too common, long fork rake which does not look to me like a standard Reynolds blade, but as was frequently done, modified by the builder.
More the work of a small maker, hundreds to chose from, makes me think of Queree bros in Birmingham, but they usually had big brass letters on the top tube.

Where abouts are you? North or South could help as to possible maker.
