Recently purchased a frame and forks + bits thanks to a fellow forum member.

Favourite is the team colours from the 1970's.However i remember seen one in purple with white panels which i also liked.

Anyone got another period colour scheme :?:

Team colours are a little passe (IMO), with Holdsworth is you were prepared to wait you could have any colour scheme you wanted.

I'll not show my Mistral as it was a one off!

Take a look on - http://www.nkilgariff.com/ or -

Should give you enough ideas.

Hi, just to help out on ideas, here is a link to my mistral http://www.flickr.com/photos/tk_photos/ ... hotostream from approx 1972/3 ( what a colourful period in history ) which is a lilac / pink colour, it is original and maybe a holdsworth shop one ( minimum brazons / lug lined / pattern painted on the stays ). I was after a good one, and the colour didn't matter, but the colour has grown on me, and its not being changed on my watch. Terry
