>Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed
>Im new to this list and was hoping someone might be able to help me
>identify my old bike.
>First, a little about me.
>I live in Auckland , New Zealand after leaving the UK with my family in
>1985. My dad is an avid Hetchins fan and has several of them, and I
>just have an old Holdsworth.
>I bought the frame second hand and built a bike out of it when I was 14.
>When I got it , it was a pinky lilac colour.
>My dad thought it was a pre-war model but I don't know.
>I can only find a serial number on the forks, which is 24580 M
>after looking at all the other recommended spots for one.
>It does not have the long pointy bits on the lug work, and does have
>a Holdsworth badge on the front.
>I tried the website http://homepage.ntlworld.com/
>but he says he is having a break from answering emails.
>Any help would really be appreciated.
>I hope to identify the model and then try and restore it to is
>original colours and decals, etc.
