Oh my, this is beautiful. Just not sure about the rims.

My first "proper" bike (in the 70s) was a black Holdsworth, and I've had a soft spot for them ever since.

Never seen that before, can you get any pics? :D


From what I remember it was a pale-ish limey flamboyant green...


According to my contact/acquaintance, who was a Holdsworth team mechanic, the colour was lime green enamel (not a flam'), Although flam' greens are a favourite colour of mine!

Hmm, interesting. According to the 'Cycling' road test of Mike Shea's bike, also on the Kilgariff site, it was 'Flamboyant'.
