Dear listmembers,

I have for sale a custom Bill Holland frameset. It's 52cm c-t with a 53cm TT. This frame was built for his wife back in the early to mid 80's. It has all of the top features of the day. Bill Holland of San Diego is not to be confused with John Hollands from the East. This frame features chrome head lugs, ft. der braze on, rt. chainstay and rear dropouts (done with the unique style created by Rob Roberson), and chrome ft. dropout faces. Has internal der. cable routing and rear brake routing. Also the original world class two tone Joe Bell paint job with only a few small scratches on the rt. chainstay (up near the BB shell) from the chain. I recently scored another Holland frame that is more my size, so I'm letting this one go. Pictures for serious potential buyers are available.

This frame is an excellent example of the framebuilding craft by one of the best builders in America. Bill does only Ti and Ti/carbon frames these days; but this special bike for his wife was world class in it's day, and it really still is. Bill started with the Eisentraut class back in the early 70's and has been building unbelievable frames ever since. Not that it would necessarily matter to anyone; but Bill Holland is also one of the most humble and nice people one could ever hope to meet. He also taught Joe Bell how to paint in the early days!
