Readers Rides from Brooks Stories - No.3 - ‘Made in England’

In the latest edition of reader’s rides from Brooks stories, we found Jeff Anjo of California and his 1984 Holdsworth Mistral touring bicycle, seen here parked gracefully alongside Lake Solano in the hills above San Fransisco, California. Its Brooks Professional saddle left the Brooks Smethwick factory in 1985, the bicycle and saddle met for the first time in 1986.

Made in England, both saddle and bicycle in the years since have taken Jeff on many adventures. But we may have to send round the bicycle style police to get the handlebars clad with Brooks Leather Bar Tape for him.

Was there ever a Brooks story where you planned or thought of, taking over Middlemores when they went bankrupt, being as you aquired Lycett, Leatheries and absorbed Wrights?
