    Looks foreign as the lamp holder is on the other side.

    Not really sure but i am thinking late 60's , i quite like that Holdsworth but i would want confirmation that the seat post and quill stem are not both frozen or stuck in the frame

    I'd say it's a 50s something but I agree it doesn't look like a Holdsworth. Dawes put their frame numbers in that position and only had 4 digits but looking at the VCC catalogues it doesn't look like a Dawes either.

    I just noticed it's got some type of cycle computer on the bars despite looking like its been shed bound since 1975.

    I like that a lot, especially for £25! That's my sort of secondhand bargain. 501 frame in my size with what look like Weinmann suicide levers! When I had a drop bar Raleigh bike I used to ride mostly on the tops of the bars for comfort & visibility so the suicide levers got used far more than the main ones ever did. They were fine so long as you kept the brake shoes adjusted close to the rims.

    I like a straight forward seller, “a mixy blob of components” is the perfect description^_^

    Amazing collection of complete bikes and frames up for auction here:

    Major Nichols, Bates, Mercian, etc. Being a long fellow myself, The Carlton Longfellow in particular caught my eye. Luckily for my domestic situation the auction house is in Bristol and I'm not...
