Judging from the frame number it is from about 1967. There's one with with close serial no. 30832 on classiclightweights: http://www.classiclightweights.co.uk/bi ... sm-rb.html


that doesnt tie in with my earlier comment re Sandy Holdsworth , but number sequence it does . Looking at the Holdsworth in the link very similar with some very subtle differences ie no rear centre pull brake guide and the 1 i have has short spearpoint lugs .

keep up the good work guys

I'll stick my neck out pending some more images of the frame -

The Holdsworth typeface (on the downtube) is late sixties/seventies, cannot tell whether it has a metal headbadge (if it has one that puts it no later than seventies).

The fork crown looks sloping but is it lugged externally or internally (like a Cinelli) ? And a Campagnolo Victory or Triomphe chaninset is eighties; but then componentry rarely gives meaningful clues to age.

Rk.

fork crown is sloping with no external lugs and tapers down nicely . silly as it sounds cant remember headbadge detail .

yes chainset is a lot later replacement might even replace it with a Super Moxy set not sure , fr & rr changer and levers are all period Campag . the brakes are just borderline on the amount of drop they have for 27" it came on 700 sprint and tubs with a few spare sprint wheels .

brookes b17 proffesional saddle looks fairly original so will be checking frame for date stamp .

i cant wait to get it back so i can get to grips with it and start doing the bits that need doing to get it mobile .

on the plus side the Roy Thame that turned up same time is cleaning up nicely which is good .

I'd like to see a better image of the frame...close(r).

Roadking.


best i have at moment due to me forgetting to get some pics before dropping off at Lbs for some recommissioning , meant to have took loads to try and help , but what with the weather and everything else .



No worries,

let's see some more at a later date. I'm always interested in good quality Holdsworths.

Rk.


ok collected today from lbs who confirmed forks bear same number as frame so look original items , under side of Brooks Professional is stamped 66 so 1966 , brake calipers are Universal extra brev453949 type , and not enough drop to run 27" wheels so need to sort a nice pr of 700's .

any more info or ideas please add
