Subject: [CR] Team colours Holdsworth on ebay


I don't know if anyone is contemplating bidding on ebay item 370165731986, which could, on the information given, be mistaken for a Professional by the unknowing. I saw this machine at the auction where it was sold last week, and it is clearly not a Pro, but a 531 plain gauge Equipe, probably made in 1976, on which Holdsworth used team colours in order to cash in on their racing success. Even then very few of the components are original. I have pointed this out to the seller but they don't seem inclined to pass the information on, but I wouldn't want any list member to be caught out by this.
