Extra DetailsThis machine was purchased in 1952 from Geoff Kittle Cycles, Watton. In the first year Brian was riding it at a grass track event at Great Yarmouth and Gorleston Police Sports when he was forced off the track into the long-jump pit. This damaged the both the top tube and down tube so the frame was returned to Holdsworth for repair in 1953. When it was returned they had fitted the new 'Coronation' headbadge with the crown superimposed and also applied the new script downtube transfer.
