Headbadge Information
From my 1973 Holdsworth "Professional" frame.

Holdsworth, W.F. Holdworth, Holdworthy and Worthy were all separate but somewhat related entities (very confusing) plus the company changed hands a number of times. These riveted metal head badges were used on the better models until around 1975 when they switched to decals.

See other head badges under W. F. Holdsworth listing.

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.
