Hi again, Mark, and welcome to the list. I have a Holdsworth in 753, Campagnolo blue, that I bought in 1984. Despite some of the negative comments mad about it recently, I never had any problems (I'm no featherweight at 190 lbs.) BTW, some people on this list were interested in Dugast tires in 28 mm.

<< In 1985 I moved onto a Look 753R which I understand was built by Cycles Lejaune(sp) using Cinelli cast lugs, that is still the best steel frame I ever had, unfortunately in a race I went into the back of a car that wasn't meant to be around a blind corner on a 55mph descent... I keep thinking of getting Sachs to make me a 753 frame again, but then maybe I'm better left with the memory. I saw a NOS sample in a store in Zurich last year that was 1cm too small, or I would have come back with it... If I were to get a frame of that era now, it would be to have Gerald Donovan to make me a 753 Panasonic Team frame of 1984.
