Subject: [CR]Holdsworth Claud Butler frame ID help needed

I recently had a call from the nearby Falcon Cycles factory asking if I would like a Claud Butler frameset that someone had taken in to them. Having collected it, and had a good look at it, I am unable to work out just what model it is. The frame has been poorly hand painted, so lacks any transfer clues to the identity, although the metal head badge is still there, painted the same mushroom colour as the frame. The number is clearly a Holdsworth number, with the CB suffix to differentiate it from the other ranges they were producing. Norman Kilgariff thinks the number is from 1964 or 65, but we both lack a catalogue from that period which would help identify the model. I have loaded some pics of the frame detail at http://ntlworld.photobox.co.uk/album/1571123 , and will appreciate any help that anyone can offer.
