Description: This wonderful bike is a classic custom touring rig by W. F. Holdsworth in Putney built to my specs in 1964, with center-pull frame-mounted brakes (before these were evident stateside). She has the Holdsworth shield on the stem, and a radical set of sprockets that gave an amazing touring service around Europe. Probably painted over now but had HHP in gold painted both sides on the seat sleeve wrap-over. Fine decorative filagree brace work at all four corners of this custom frame, built by frame-master Reg Collard at their shop on Richmond in London
