i've been using this bike for a couple of months now and am surprised about the smooth ride it is, to my best knowledge its from 1973, it has nice parts (looks like a couple of updates) i took it with me from holland (where i'm from) to the states, but i had to pay for it so i'm thinking about leaving it behind. any guesses on an estimate?
I would not leave it behind. Reynolds frames are worth saveing. Unless the wheels are something special, leave them behind and make the package as small as possible. Just my opine.

I really like the Holdsworth.
The Holdsworth Professional (in Holdsworth orange!) is really a grail of mine, but they, and almost any Holdsworth, seem pretty rare here in the states. While your's needs some work, it does have some great parts on it, and that makes it a keeper in my very amateur opinion. With alittle TLC, your's can be a very nice and collectible bike. And since you like the Cadillac ride, I think you have to keep it. The very few I have seen for sale here have been from $1000 - $1500.
Nice to see a Holdsworth on the forum!

Thanks for the reactions, what i meant by 'leave it behind' was leave it for someone to enjoy (aka sell it), as i have quite a quiver back home.
