New purchase -
Holdsworth Cyclone which research shows was made in 47'.
Plans are to get it repainted and build it up as correct as possible for the period.

BB is rather interesting as it has these raised lugs on both sides (Drive side with the most) but from the 49' it would appear that these frames were fixed, So maybe a later modification at some point in its 72 years.

Frame No 7740 which makes it 47'.
Research shows production that year ran from No 7150 to 8500.

Underneath the the frame No is CR 23
(C could also be a G ) and looking at frame builders who worked for Holdsworth at this time could mean that this stamp means that the frame was made by Charlie Roberts, Father of Chas Roberts but I'm not certain of this

Look forward to watching this progress.
That's a really nice looking frame as it is, so refurbished should be something special. :)
