Roy Thame road bike

Does anyone have any info on this thing? I haven't rode it yet but might get to try it today. Some bits look to need replacing.

Large pictures:


I'd be using it regularly and routinely, ~50 miles "around town" each week and occassional 30-130 mile excursions.

Thanks for any opinions.

The Wiki Holdsworth page makes mention of a Roy Thame:

In 1953, Holdsworth appointed a former sailor, Roy Thame, who had worked at a cycle shop in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, where he lived. He worked with the company for more than 50 years and managed the professional team that the company established in the 1960s as well as Great Britain teams in world championships. Thame also served on British Cycling Federation committees nationally and acted as commissaire, or chief referee, on domestic multi-day races such as the Tour of the West.

I can't offer any more information than that - but it looks like a very nice English bike . I suspect someone added the turkey wings (lose them) and the Suntour Vx DRs (good stuff)
That would like great with a new Brooks BTW.
