    Dating a Holdsworth Super Mistral

    I wonder if any one can help me date my Holdsworth. There is a clear frame number stamped on the bottom bracket which reads: 33941. Thanks .

    Martin, You should try running an archive search here for anything with "Holdsworth", there might be a clue to dating yours by finding a close match to another serial number.
    I have to check on MY Super Mistral (which supposedly is mid-70s, but I'm still not convinced) cause I can't remember its number right now.
    here's one thread that contains a few pics and some mention of numbers:

    there's more info than this in the archives, I'm sure.

    EDIT: here's a quote that might help
    "...31236. I'm almost certain it is a 1967 model..."

    Read How Old Is My Bike? That should bring you very close to actual vintage. I might add that determining vintage yourself is actually a fun thing to do.

    Hope this is a help.

    serial numbers are possibly a good source of info, as unworthy points out there quite a few holdsworth questions on this website.
    i have a (i think 1972-74) super mistral and the number is 41310,
    my 1982 nuovo record is 41366...any ideas why they would be so close?
    the NR was in production for 1 year only
