Claud Butler bike

I got this bike today.
It is not in a good condition, but still a Reynolds 531 frame and fork.
Mix of components: front, rear derailleurs and shifters
S.n. is 043xxx
Any info of the model and the year?
Thanks

Because of the black ring between fork and frame I'm guessing a bit into the eighties. I did a search and found a similar a 1986 catalog picture. Claude Butler stayed very true to their build for decades, even the front logo stayed much the same. I'm sure some detective work will narrow it down to more than a wild guess :- )

Frame - Prugnat 62/d lugset. Vagner crown nr. DP. Ends look like they could be either Zeus Competicion Ref. 92 or Campag Sport ref. 1010/1.

Date ~1978. Headset looks as if it might be a replacement. Bicycle definitely from the Holdsworthy time.

The head set is Levin CD Tange.

Yours exhibits a chrome locknut while the one in this image wears a black one.

Fittings mix seems a bit of an odd kitting...

Will follow what the Holdsworthy experts have to write.

Those dang mud daubbers get into every bolt hole and build their nest. Now you have to clean them out of the fork's light braze on.

Nice machine even if from the Holdsworthy time.

Both have Weinmann 750 brakes.
The first one has Shimano 105 rear derailleur and shifter, the second one has Shimano 600 rear derailleur and shifter. Somebody had fun with these bikes.
