1971 Holdsworth Super Mistral

Three years looking around for The Frame I found this on lfgss.com (thank you Hilary Stone). I've done quite a few things with this bike, but mainly I've used it for commuting, that's why I ended up using classic handlebars (and a child carrier, which is something I problably didn't think I would see installed on it when I built it).

Frame:
1971 Holdsworth Super Mistral/Special. Reynolds 531, with Prugnat lugs and wrapover seatstays.

Fork/Headset:
Holdsworth fully sloping integral design (Cinelli style). Don't know about the headset.

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Sugino Mighty 52/42 and Mavic Fixe 114mm.

Pedals:
MKS Sylvan Touring.

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
Regina Extra 7v freewheel and KMC X8 chain.

Derailleurs/Shifters:
Suntour Blue Line / Shimano 105.

Handlebars/Stem:
No Name 42 cm / Sakae Alps long kill.

Saddle/Seatpost:
Brooks B17 / Kalloy.

Brakes:
Tektro R538 with Tektro R100A levers.

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Mavic CXP12 laced to Mavic hub. Michelin Dynamic 28.

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Mavic CXP33 laced to 126mm Mavic hub. Michelin Dynamic 28.
