As much as I would love to restore them to their former glory, due to finances, time and no where to work these will have to be sold, but I do have the photos and the memories.
I was sorting through some more bike bits today and found some accessories, lights, pumps and a bell etc, if anyone wants to complete their retro look. I will post later, these might be usefull to someone or not.
So that said I will be selling the1951 Claud Butler Super Velo, the 1954 Claud Butler DP tandem is already on sale on Ebay and the 1949 Holdsworth Cyclone De luxe. So if anyone is interested pm me.

Oh and a Holdsworth trike conversion set with dual drum brakes, complete with stay bars and brake cables.

I'm new here and this is my first post. I've done a quick search and found a couple of similar bikes so I'm not expecting too much but would be interested to see what you think.
I have a Peugeot 501 Galibier, late 80's I believe. The gear change for the rear derailleur has been moved to the handle bars. The rear wheel was recently rebuilt to original 80's specs.

Hi, further to my last posts of How Much on the 2 Claud Butlers can I ask if anyone has any idea on this next one.
The bike is a 1949 Holdsworth Cyclone De Luxe, it is in original unrestored condition and as far as I can see all complete. A big thank you to those of you who have helped already and any further help is greatly appreciated.
I have searched online for an idea of price but at the moment there does not seem to be any for sale at the moment.

That's an absolutely lovely Holdsworth with amazing details like the lugs and seat stays. Id love to restore it myself but know full well I couldn't afford it, and have already several projects to take up my time. I also couldn't suggest a price except a very general one, but maybe it would be an idea to check here on the complete bikes for sale forum and do a search for makers name and model? The non Deluxe version of the model might bring up more results, and would still give you a good idea of what yours would fetch.
