Selling my 1973 Holdsworth Equipe OPEN TO OFFERS

I am selling my 1973 Holdsworth Equipe, owned from new and bought from their Putney shop.

Make me an offer. I think it is probably one of the most easy recognized colour schemes of that era, riding on the back of the professional team’s successes (that’s what made me buy it).
My bike had a recent full service at J. E. James Cycles, Chesterfield, with parts replaced as listed below at a cost of over £200.

It is now fully operational, but unfortunately I have discovered I can no longer ride in a sustained crouching position after a lower spinal disk was destroyed.

I am reluctant to part with it (as are my kids) as it has been a part of my life since adulthood but would be happy to see it giving pleasure an enthusiast.
