THE VINTAGE BIKE CARTEL - Restorers and retailers of fine vintage, used modern and retro bicycles

BIKE: Custom Built Holdsworth 3 Speed

SIZE: 57cm


Here for sale we have a one off custom built Holdsworth 3 Speed.

I took a New Planet X Holdsworth frame and added a new headset and bottom bracket before fitting a three speed Sturmey Archer wheelset.

As these are single speed frames, the hub gearing gives you a bit more versatility.

Bars and tape are deda and the stem is 3T.

Saddle is a new Bobbin item

Wheels are German made continental gatorskins with slime tubes fitted too.

Frame is in super shape with a couple of touch ups and a small chip of paint missing near one of the headset cups.

I’ve used this bike myself in the winter a few times and it proved an excellent ride.

I own an orange one myself as a single speed and can testify that they’re a quality frame.

All of our bikes are checked over and serviced where necessary by a trained technician before going on sale to make sure your new push iron is the best it can be.

Here at the vintage bike cartel we specialise in custom bike builds and servicing of all kinds.

We are a real life workshop and you're welcome to come and view all of our bikes and take a test ride or two if you like.

Cash on collection or shipping is fine too

the VBC is a physical shop and workshop based near Ashby De la Zouch in Leicestershire.

It is run by myself, I source, restore, list, package and ship all the bikes we stock.

All bikes are used unless stated as NOS or New Old Stock, they will have marks and scuffs from use, which will be all listed in the details which you need to read clearly, the detailed pictures also form part of the description

Any unusual issues will be noted clearly in the listing.

We DONT sell any bikes with seized seat posts or stems.

We aim to ship your bike within three days, as a one man operation, it can take a short while to service check and prepare your new push iron for shipping.

Your bike will arrive in a recycled bike specific box and may require some reassembly, if you're not sure, any local bike shop can build it for you - normally it's simply a case of refitting your front wheel and putting the bars and seat back on, then fitting pedals if supplied.

If you find you need any advice, please feel free to make contact.
