Holdsworth Frame Numbers

Re:

Mine has the modern headset with push in bearings, another example that they would build to order as they where built within a week of each other.
For me it would be good to find that the lower hole is original the badges where on quite fine pins.
When I scaled the few internet pics the spacing seemed much bigger than the later head badge, it will be interesting to find out what is correct, look forward to your update

Here's my Holdsworth Mistral as I originally found it a few years ago with 27inch wheels and as it is now in its current incarnation. This is my every day rider and full on camping touring bike having covered many trouble free miles in both England and France. My thinking is that it is a 82 frame with rack mounts on the seat stays and a lamp boss..? The bottom bracket height seems quite high considering it's a touring frame but guess it helps me see over the hedgerows ... :D

Re:

The 82 catalogue is showing the Mistral without the lamp boss and no mention of 531st in the next... could mine be an 83 ... :?:

Sorry now I've found the other part of the 82 catalogue of the complete bike and specifications and it's showing the lamp boss and rack mounts so maybe it is 82..?
The other colour listed is Spruce Green Pearl which is my colour. The only other components my bike originally had as in the spec was Campagnolo hubs and Weinnman center pulls.

Ok that's interesting. So do he navigation buttons take you to the model pages? I get redirected to the Adobe site saying this does not work any more.

Well at least its working for now, if you don't see the message I have added on the home page then you must be running from something in your tablets memory. I'll make a start on updating the site.
