I'm tempted by the group set...And maybe the whole bike althought it would have to be 54cm top tube lenght. As to what it's worth no idea.

Jesus.. that Argos looks a stretch. 71/73? Saddle right back and 12cm stem. Not criticising...just observing.

Yep he's a big guy (mate from work) 6'2" at a guess, about the same around (!).

I'd find some cash for it but at 5'7" I can barely reach the headset, let alone the handlebars...

Way to big for me as well. I'd need a step ladder and arm and leg extensions. Again if you split interested in full group and wheels. No idea on what it's worth.

Think it's 58cm (ish)

This will soon be for sale, almost brand new, only a few hundred miles on it, but lovingly stored for 20 years or so.

Need a rough guide of what something like this is worth.


Don't know much about the frame but a clean Chorus 95 Groupset like that can be worth £350+

DA 7700. I'm having trouble pricing this: A used, but mint, complete Dura Ace 7700 group set with wheels. Wheels are 32 hole on Mavic Open Pro inc DA skewers with nice touches like radial front and non-drive rear spoke lacing. STIs unusually don't even have any wall scuffs on them! I know it would be worth more as individual pieces but I don't really want to split it as it would go nicely straight onto a 99/00 build (crikey, has retro really got they modern!?). Thanks in advance. :D

I sold a NOS Ultegra 9 speed group for over $1000 us, but I sold it one piece at a time with aggressive, but not out of control, BIN on the bay. I used the top mean price as my base, so if the brake shift levers sell for between $200 and $280 my BIN would be 280. To price it out go on ebay and do a completed listing search on each part individually and look for the GREEN successful sales. its time consuming but worth it. I don't think there is any reason to keep a 7700 group together its not rare, so get the most you can and buy yourself something nice.

Hi there friendly road retrobikers.
In my cave I happen to have a 22" c-c holdsworth zephyr road and path frame and fork for restoration only.
Frame and fork have matching numbers on steerer tube and drop outs. Was my dads when he was 16. Overall good condition for resto, all transfers and decals still visible, paintwork shot as is chrome for forks but very solid otherwise. Only small defect is notch in seattube binder.
Frame has non standard metal Holdsworth headbadge, a factory cut down cyclone deluxe headbadge.
"1952 saw the introduction of the Zephyr and the dropping of the Cyclone-de-Luxe. The Zephyr lugs were the same as those on the earlier Cyclone with the addition of windows, frames were for Road Path use and cost £15.15.0. " This I think dates the frame to 52 onwards.
So whats it worth and should I sell, at 6'3" this is probably a bit small for me..
Sorry no pics but if theres enough interest I could probably get some up
Thanxeverso DrJo
