Let's try again...



There we go. It's worked it's way into my affections and become my favourite road bike. The comfort, the smooth ride, those lovely Wolber rims, great stuff. The Holdsworthy era Claud's are excellent machines indeed, very underrated.

What a stunner, I totally agree about the comfort of these frames, especially for the long in the leg types.... much maligned as heavy 'not real Claud's'
I've manged to collect everything I need now to make mine as near as practicable a catalogue correct tourer, just getting the rack sorted today.

PS, Have you informed Dave AKA dwscrimshaw

of the frame number, and a picture for the Holdsworth frame log?

Great story... you have one switched on son & ''69 Electron + 84 Majestic, all for the princely sum of £157 combined'' spoken like a true Yorkshireman!

Mine was free. The guy bought it new and ridden it across the decades, but having lain idle for years as he bought newer bikes he was going to bin it.
