Holdsworth vintage bike



Holdsworth was a London based manufacturer created by William Frank Holdsworth, known as Sandy. The first frames were manufactured at the end of the 1950’s. They became a national name in British cycling through it’s catalogue “Aids to Happy Cycling” and its Professional Team.

This superb Holdsworth frameset has been hand crafted by traditional methods with butted Reynolds 531 tubing throughout. It is finished off with quality components including a Brooks B17 saddle, Shimano Arabesque levers and Middlemores engraved bars. Feel the difference and enjoy peace of mind.
