Holdsworth hand-crafted road bike frameset is fine English work, made in
London late 1970s or so.
The paint and decals are all original,
there are the expected nicks and scratches as found on most bikes of
this era, additionally, there is a linear dent on top of the top-tube
from the brake cable-housing being pushed down. There is also a dent on
the downtube where the rear shifter boss was pushed into the
tube,perhaps the bike fell over once and hit the shifter. Also, someone
once put a bolt-on kickstand on the bike so there are dimples from that.
There is some corrosion on the top tube from sweat, especially around
the cable guides. It appears the last owner attempted to touch-up the
paint around the guides.
This is a fabulous vintage lugged steel
frameset, in a most desireable size, the price is cash firm.
