I came across a 1983 catalogue, so with the help of the invaluable https://dawescycles.wordpress.com/ I've done about as much as I can for now.
Itch well and truly scratched, but corrections and gap fills are more than welcome.
If anyone wants the pdf/docx that the attached came from, drop me a pm.

Cheers,
Z
PS/ Should any of Dawes' lawyers be watching and get upset at the homage to their 80's catalogue style, let me know and I'll take it down.

Thanks for this. I have a Dawes Imperial that has had a few parts replaced but this is perfect for resto reference

You're very welcome. I just noticed that there's an errant piece of text that failed the doc->pdf conversion but the info is as comprehensive as I know at this point. I failed to mention that the toe straps appear to be Dawes-branded Zefals. Incidentally, what year is yours and do you care to share the frame number?

Mines 1986 (blue) and yes I’ll have a look tmrw for frame no. I need to sell it as it doesn’t get ridden, but am undecided whether to restore first or not.
