73/73 degree angles made it slightly more relaxed than the Professional. It also had mudguard eyes on the drop outs.I guess you could call it an early Sportif model. Seat tube:23 1/2" Top Tube 22" Head Tube 7. For 27 wheels so will take 700c with clearance for mudguards. 126mm OLN rear drop outs.
Frame/Forks/Headset and seat bolt weigh 3080gms (Kitchen scales). Comes with Campagnolo seatpost bolt and Campagnolo steel gransport headset.
The levers on the frame are not included, but I will also include all paperwork and a bottle of touch up paint. Has been in storage for 20 years (well, hanging on my office wall). I had always intended to build it up never got round to it and truth be, it is slightly too small as I grew another 3 after I bought it. When Howes closed in 2013, it was the UK's oldest Cycle shop having been open for 173 years since 1840.I will include the additional shop sticker. I have been asked whether its a replica or not. Campag ends, Lugs, Partial wrap stays, top tube cable guides all say Holdsworth. No photos of previous colour. In 1983 I had it resprayed red and the down tube gear lever bosses added. Please do look at the flickr link as there are photos of the Argos receipt, which will be supplied with the frame. Im travelling to Scotland in next few days if that works for meeting up. I want you to be happy with this item.
