Allenh's 1976 Holdsworth Autograph

As I've got one that fits in this remit I'd better enter it.

This is a 1976 Holdsworth Autograph that I restored last year. This model was only available for 1 or possibly 2 years and as far as I can see only appears in the 1976 catalogue. All subsequent Autographs were full 531 but with this earlier model it was the forks only that were 531. I don't know what the frame tubing is but it's a lovely old hector to ride so is something of a decent quality at least.

It's another of my own spray jobs and is in its original colours, there was a range of colours available but most I've seen are either all white or light metallic blue. You could buy them with individual decals for all the team riders on and this one was originally a Keith Lambert model but unfortunately Lloyds only do Les West decal sets. If I can get Keith's autograph Lloyds have said they will make me a correct set up for it so this one may well get re done in the future.

Nice work Allen, although you seem to have missed out on the secondary French theme unless those tubes are Prugnel? :P oh and watch out you don’t get shot for posting three photos :facepalm: :shock: :D 8)

*EDIT* I ment Nervex (French) not Prugnel (Italian)! Sorry, the above was written on return from the pub! :oops:

Allen
That is a lovely entry.
You could maybe condense the description down to one paragraph or so but it doesn't matter too much. I would take away the third photo though as it isn't relevant to botm.
If you haven't already done it though, I would copy and paste the whole post as it is now and start a readers rides thread.

I can see I need to have finished at least one of the two Carltons in my queue to fit in properly here. Sadly though I don't think either of mine are up to snuff compared to the ones on display here.

I think the choice this month might be a little difficult as well

Hi Allenh. It is good to see a few different Carlton’s but I for one do enjoy seeing and reading the links to all the other makes of period bikes submitted as well. All have an equal chance of winning to my untrained eyes. I think those responsible for the thread all deserve praise for what they do, so let’s hope more will submit bikes to the thread and make the voting even that bit more difficult.
