Nice vintage ladies road bike, handmade in the legendary Holdsworth factory with a gold paintjob, a bit chipped in places but looks great in the elegant mixte frame geometry. True retro charm.

This bike is in good mechanical condition. Its ready to ride but for the true enthusast would make a great project for cosmetic restoration. In recent times it has had new cables and new brake blocks. The tyres are virtually new Marathon Plus.


Reynolds 531 frame and forks
Alloy bars/stem/post,
Alloy rims (27)
Suntour shifting (Suntour Vx on rear, Suntour downtube shifters)
Double Suntour chainset and 5 speed freewheel
Campagnolo wide-flange hubs (rear reads Campag Record)
Weinmann centre-pull brakes

Bike is in good riding condition and everything works as it should. Nothing to fix or replace.

Cosmetically in reasonable condition but as in most bikes of its age, it shows evidence of use. Some scratches, marks in frames and the odd rust spot, but nothing major. Overall, a nice vintage ladies road bike ready for use in Eroica rides.

Shipping: I would prefer the item to be picked up but will box and courier the bike if required. The cost for Parcel Force is about £35 but cheaper couriers are available. If you wish to use a cheaper courier, please contact me to discuss before bidding.
