The last of my Grandfather's frames.

Holdsworth Mistral from the 1960s. Silver with red seat-tube panel and headtube, red Holdsworth logo.
Size is 56cm square
Braze-ons for gear levers on the downtube. Built for 27" wheels but will take 700c with extra-long drop brakes. The Alhonga ones I have were not at full extension.
Chromed rear ends, about 6 inches. Half-chromed forks, up to about 6 inches from fork ends.
Very light frame - (inaccurately) measured at around 2.6kg for the frame and fork.

Condition: pretty tatty. Would benefit a respray. Rear chrome is fine, but the chrome on the forks is bad, and completely gone in places.
No rust. Slight dent on the top tube. Slight crack in the seat tube just below the clamp as someone has put a 26.8 in at somepoint, whereas it should take a 27.2

Looking for about £75 plus any postage cost. Can do pictures if there is interest.

Thanks for looking, Neil.
