Holy Thread revival Batman
I still have the frame, now hanging in my conservatory next to a Roberts white spider frame which will be built next
It's interesting re-reading this thread as since I wrote it I now have several boxes of retro lovelyness bits, the Roberts frame, several forks and the very near completion Yo Eddy as well as a couple of retro road bikes and their own boxes of bits..... I can confirm this website is bad for your wealth
Anyway....with regard to the Dawes..I am 100% certain that it's a 92' Edge Extra, as I wrote in an earlier post as it was complete with a full XTR M900 group with Mag20 forks and even the same bars and stem, and even the right green colour under the horrible oversprayed blue. Therefore there is no doubt in my mind that it's the 531 designer select tubed frame.
There is a catalogue uploaded showing it how it used to look once upon a time. I still have the M900 stuff that was on it which is destined for the Roberts when I get around to refinishing the frame.
The Dawes is a bit too big for me so will probably be for sale one of these days if I ever get around to sorting it out. I have officially become a retrobike hoarder
The future is retro ........
