  1. Looks an expensive combination from a manufacturing point of view. J.
  2. My older brothers first bike was a RUDGE and mine was a Holdsworth......... Both second or more hand ...... for modern terms, pre-owned. J. J.
  3. That can be no further from the truth, you only need to peruse the forum to see the help afforded no matter which machine or method anyone owns or adopts.
