MISC:   Dawes of Birmingham c. 1971 posted by: Dick Page on 5/16/2004 at 8:11:13 PM
I purchased a new Dawes 'Galaxy' 10-sp touring bicycle in the early 1970s from the owner of a bicycle shop in Columbus, Ohio. The double-butted tubing is Reynolds 531 and the 'crest' fronting the tubing headpiece is a flashy red torch under which reads, "Dawes, Birmingham, England". Are parts still available for this edition? Is it a collector's item? Some parts have been replaced with Shimano running gear.

Dick, www.dawescycles.com is on Sheldon Brown's links page and your first question is one of their FAQs. There is also just a little mention at www.classicrendezvous.com/British/Dawes_main.htm
Unfortunately they don't appear to have a U.S. dealer network, but someone will be able to help you if you want to restore the original running gear and don't know what it was. If you know or need to know what parts you need, you've come to the right place- just ask, somebody will have one.
The thing about good quality frames is, you have to decide whether you want historical accuracy or what's known as "upgrades." On the other hand, a 10-speed is more trouble to modify and so might be a better candidate for keeping original. Do you ride it for distance? Chances are the Shimano running gear is more convenient and easier to maintain.
I'd like to see pictures.






FOR SALE:   Raleigh Sports...a pair posted by: Fred A on 5/16/2004 at 5:47:20 PM
Hi all...

If any of you live on (or near) Long Island, NY and are interested in purchasing a pair of 1973 Raleigh Sports bikes in green with the original Brooks saddles, let me know. Both bikes were purchased from the original husband & wife owners. It's all there, including the rear reflectors that usually wind up getting lost. They need a good detailing, which I usually do, and there is some rust on the paint and chrome.
I bought them yesterday to add to my list of bike projects, but my collection has gotten way out of control (you know!). Besides, my wife doesn't understand my bike craziness, etc. etc.

So, let me know if you're interested. I took pics and will email them to you. Oh, there is also a saddlebag that contained the tools that apparently came with (bought seperately ) the bike.

These are for PICK UP ONLY. Email at:

fappel@optonline.net

Thanks,
Fred A
