Holdsworth Professional 1981

Eroica Qualifying


Life on wheels are proud to offer for sale this beautifully restored Holdsworth Professional vintage racing bike. The paintwork is of the highest standard and is in the classic Holdsworth racing colours of orange and kingfisher blue. The frameset was painted by Vaz finishers, famous for there exemplary high-quality work. We have completed the bike using a 1981 full Campagnolo Nuovo Record groupset, this groupset is in almost NOS condition and compliments the frameset beautifully, finished with a Concour “Supercorsa” saddle in Ocean blue and matching bar tape this bike really is a piece of ridable art. The bike qualifies for all vintage and Eroica events

Important Info

Life on wheels offer no warranty on any vintage products however, we carry out a comprehensive structural and mechanical inspection prior to any bike being sold. All bearings are stripped and regreased and the bike fully serviced. Please look at the images of the bike carefully as they form part of the description. In some cases, new tubs are included in the sale where the original tubs show signs of cracking or other age-related issues. Life on wheels do not accept responsibility for the road worthiness of any tubs supplied with their bikes, it is the new owner’s responsibility to check and confirm them fit for purpose prior to the bike being used or ridden. We do our best to correctly identify any components listed are from the correct groupset type and that the framesets are dated accurately. Occasionally we might make an honest mistake, so please ensure you look at the images provided.
