Headbadge Information
This is on my 1973 W.F. Holdsworth Competizone in team kit. This was a less expensive production model. These were "off the rack" frames that only came in standard sizes with no customization. They were "Built with good quality tubing" what ever that means. There are no Reynolds 531 decals on the bike.

Brand Information(click to expand)
 One of many English large scale frame builders who over time bought out their rivals and eventually grew too big for their own good.  Examples from their early years through the 60's are said to be of extraordinarily quality.  However through the 70's and certainly in the 80's the frames became mass produced product.  However even these later examples are reported to be fine riding frame, just do not have the workmanship of the earlier frames.  Holdsworth bought out builders Claud Butler and Freddie Grubb among others.
