Claud Butler identification and evaluation

This is the 2nd bike I bought today.
Was a package deal: Holdsworth, Butler and free purple Raleigh Competition frame.
This is marked Claud Butler.
I think that the person who owned the bikes before was a orange color lover.
The bike looks repaint and with new decals.
All Campagnolo equipped. Seat post is 26.6 mm. The rear derailleur is marked 74.
s.n. 64590 on bb.
Is it a real Claud Butler and what model?
How much is it worth?
I posted the bike in the FB Holdsworth/Claud Butler forum.
They said it might be a Holdsworth Professional frame.

Un-Professional

Serial number indicates the frame was built in 1973 in the Holdsworth factory.

Seat post size and partially obscured Reynolds sticker suggest straight gauge 531 and maybe only three tubes, or fewer, so not a rebranded Holdsworth Profesional.

Nearest catalog for CB is 1972, and you might want to peruse the offerings listed? Or maybe look at another year's catalogue?



It is indeed very orange.

The sticker says tubes, stays and forks.
Even the actual seat post is 26.6. I tried a 27mm and it fits
