Now I finally have this bike up to speed with the Super Record Derailleur, GB handlebars, Campag BB and it's original pedals back. I am going to stop doing this bike up for now but I have posted some better resolution, final pics as a closing shot (for now). I am actually quite liking the look of the Rolls saddle (although no where near as comfortable as my Professional). It will stay on this for now but should move on to another bike soon to be replaced with the original Brooks!
Enjoy! :)

Thanks Anidel! Yours is beautiful too...maybe we should consider swapping every now and then :)

Use this as my daily commute (until my next bike is ready) and it is performing brilliantly apart from a very creaky pedal which I need to solve!

Very nice looking bike and pictures, I am jealous and wishing there were more cool old bikes over here in Arizona. Keep up the good work.

When I was looking for Holdsworth bikes, there were a few Youtube videos and posts from people owning them in the US.
I think there's a strong movement of vintage bikes in the US too. Not sure in Arizona tough :)

Which is weird given the amount of wonderful space for nice rides you guys got over there!
