Here's an odd one for the list;
a 1977? Holdsworth Claud Butler Olympic Road on e-bay
(original listing now finished) https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Claud-Butler ... 7675.l2557

Frame number 004225, places it definatly post the summer of 1976 and likely early 1977, but not advertised that late.......

Would this not just be taken at face value, one of the last Olympics? its in the 1976 cat. and the late 76 cat is also possibly early 77. The date predictions could also still be a bit out for that period anyway. There are a couple of other Olympics with 6D numbers, one is the first on the list, 000017, and the other latter still, 007496. Its was a popular bike in the 70's from my recollection, may be they kept building the to meet demand.

Production was meant to be around 3500/yr at the time and depending when the 6D numbers actually started determines where these are placed. Current predictions has production higher than this so however you look at it 007496 would be built in 77.

Yup, sounds fair enough...
