I have decided to sell my beautiful and pristine 1984 Holdsworth Elan. It owes me about £1200, £600 of which was the complete rebuild and respray at Argos cycles in Bristol. The rest was new old stock parts and the seat upholstery.
It's been a year or two since the build but the bike has been sitting on it's stand since I got it. I'd say I've done an honest 80 miles on it since that restoration. It is totally a showroom quality bike which really needs someone to ride it rather than look at it. I can't recall the frame size but I am 5ft 11.5 and it fits me great.

You simply will not find a better version of this bike, period!! If you want it, I'm asking just the £600. No offers or reductions and if you want the quality work stand it's on, then that's yours for £50. Which is half of it's cost as well.
I have the old parts I took off the bike and will include pump, cycle computer, lights, spare inner tubes, helmet.
This is a space driven only decision, as believe me I'd buy this again for that money and keep it if I could.
PM me if you are interested in buying. Most questions should be answered on the build thread, If you want to ask anything else let me know.
I'm not going to ship this and I'm not letting it go until I have the money in my hand. That means collection and payment in person. I've not got any yearn to solve someones credit/financial issues by wiring credit union or dealing with odd delivery issues, if you catch my drift.
