    Help with date and model of Holdsworth

    Hi all. I am new to classic bike restoration having just done an 85 Gazelle Champion Mondial for this years L'eroica. Really enjoyed the process so have just got a Holdsworth frame and forks. It has a frame no of 32876. Plain gauge 531 tubing throughout. Straight fork crown with Prugnat lugs. It has one cable guide on the top of the bottom bracket on the drive side and has an oil port on the non drive side.There are no braze ons apart from pump lugs on the seat tube. I will post some pics. It is black in colour. I am not convinced this is the original colour. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't know, but I bet it will ride nicely. I imagine you've already found this site?

    Is there any trace of other paint color on the fork steerer? If you're saying straight gauge tubing based on the sticker, bear in mind that if it's a repaint there's no guarantee it's the correct decal.
