    Yes, there are vast number of brazings all over the bike. Sme I can figure: others, such as the three threaded bosses running down the underside of the downtube... beats me what they'd be for. The...

    Hi Tom. Yeah, although it doesn't feel as if it's had a huge amount of use. I think this would have been one of the last high spec dutch bikes before the Shimano tsunami arrived. Although it does...

    Koga Miyata Road Ace

    Greetings from Aotearoa.
    Found this classic dutch city bike at the local dump a week or so ago for $40. All it needed was a clean up, three new rear spokes and some gear changers for the Sachs...

    Thanks for all the comments. Yes, I will post more pickies when the opportunity arises.
    And thanks for the therapy on the barcons. My initial comment was, err umm, lost in translation.

    OK. I take everything back about the frame maybe being built by E Bosomworth.
    The man himself has spoken. As the rest of you know, only the guns got to work with 753. Maximum respect to you. Jeff...

    P19 could be the number.
    A couple of years ago my identical frame (Maybe 1/2in shorter than yours) was IDed as an 82 Record by venerable BF experts. The serial number is S747.

    I think you'll find it's a record frame, from 1981 or a wee bit earlier. Mine's an 82, and it has braze-on shifter bosses and cable guides. I think 1982 was the year that stuff got added. It's...

    Given the cable clips and bolt-on shifters, I'd say early 70s. My Record's a 76 and it has braze-ons. The dropouts are Zeus 2000 by the look of it - a very nice frame. Cheers - Jeff

    Lovely bike. I recall driving past the Holdsworth shop in Lower Richmond Rd in the early 80, olgling those frames in that exact same colour. Classic machine. Lucky man!

    At the risk of stating the obvious, this conversation is very USA-centric.
    The early 80s Lapierre (Dijon framemaker, 531db, full kit of gold anodzied Simplex) I saw the other day at Emmaus' Dijon...

    I reckon DMP's on the money. I've got a matching 84 record in my garage at home. That looks like a chromed fork crown. Does it have a braze on for the front derailleur. If it is a record, you have a...

    I love modern bikes. Whenever I see one I'm really tempted to lift it off the ground with my little finger. It's unreal. Don't like riding bikes that are too light though. Learned my lesson with an...

    I hacked off all the brazings on my 82 Pinarello record, and sprayed over the metallic blue paintwork with grey primer.
    No, hang on. That was just a nightmare I had after too many Grolsches. Whew!

    Congratulations. It's gorgeous. Is that a 22in frame? It's so beautifully proportioned. And is it the original pearl paintwork? If so it's in remarkable nick. Mmmmmmmm. Jeff

    Interesting thread folks.
    Coming from a country where labour costs around 50% of US rates, a man's gotta ask "would a US-made frame be made:
    1) twice as fast
    2) twice as good
    as a frame made here...
