    Claud Butler - Holdsworth

    I have come across a Claud Butler ( Holdsworth era) fully built up.

    The bike is 531 throughout and is in pretty darn good shape.


    The drive train is all Campy Super Record, including SR high-flange hubs, One of the chain rings is a Sugino however.

    The onlyu off-note is the brake levers. They are old 105 aero's. I guess the owner wanted to run his brake cables under the tape.

    This is a real nice looking bike - anyone have any thoughts on value??

    I did the same conversion on my Bianchi because, for me, Campag. or Modolo brake handles require an uncomfortably long reach. I can grab Weinmanns and most Shimanos much more rapidly and securely. Another advantage of aero handles is that they typically offer about a 10% boost in braking leverage (4.5:1 instead of 4:1).

    I'd have thought it was worth around $600 USD.

    You should keep it ! Never too many bikes.
    Butler made really good bikes. His frames were put together very well.
