The Heritage Range
In bicycle terms, owning a Holdsworth frame, that has been hand built in the United Kingdom, is the cycling equivalent of owning an Aston Martin DB5 or a Jaguar XKE. Constructed from Reynolds 531 or limited edition Reynold 753 tubing the Holdsworth heritage range has seen history brought to life with a selection of frames respectfully and lovingly recreated to capture the passion of yesteryear. The limited edition Holdsworth Super Professional 753 frameset is very special amalgamating the long history of Reynolds tubing, the ‘specialness’ of its 753 double butted steel; the pedigree of Holdsworth Bikes and the Holdsworth-Campagnolo racing team; and the time-served frame building skills of Mark Reilly - one of the UK's most respected master frame builders. What you get with a Holdsworth Super Professional 753 is a strictly limited edition frameset – custom geometry and paint work if you wish – that will be the envy of your cycling pals and a real collector’s item.
This hand built British product, in a strictly limited and numbered production of 100, is set to become a unique piece of history built, as it is, in Reynolds’ most exclusive tube set, so exclusive that Reilly and Holdsworth had to persuade the company to produce the tubes in the first place. When it was released in 1975, Reynolds 753 was the first heat-treated road cycling tubeset. Frame construction requires the lightweight material to be fixed using lug and silver brazing rods to avoid damage to the tubes. Reynolds 531 was introduced 1935 and such was the quality it continued to be considered state of the art for four decades. Articles written 80 years ago reviewing the tubes remain relevant to this day as the tubeset is celebrated for its undeniable qualities.
