That seatstay join to the top lug is art itself.
I havent heard of the man before, but would be really interested to know more.
I also wouldnt know where to begin with a valuation, but it looks like a real class build. Keep and restore.

Witcomb were a very well known frame builders in South London and exported a lot to America. I think they were still going until quite recently. Their trade mark colours were a pale lilac with black (?) contrasts.

Dawes Londoner Tourer 1987 ?

My Neigbour has just popped round saying that I like okd bikes :D Unfortunaltley I have no knowledge or experience of these type of machines, I will say its in beautiful confition as you can see, has 531 ST (super touring ?) frame and forks, frame is blue with lovely lugs with a gold edge. All original bar the bar tape which I have advised on replacing. A rouch Idea of a price would be great for him as he is looking to sell.

That is very nice and is a Galaxy in all but name.

Shame its too small for me.

Anyone an idea what a Shimano 600 Arabesque group is worth? So front mech, rear mech, brake levers+brakes and the shift levers. All in good nick, only the brake levers are a bit scuffed.

Peugeots are doing remarkably good money on ebay at the moment - I've seen plenty come in in the £80 - £100 range, bringing back painful memories of the larghe numbers of them in perfect condition that I didn't buy in the late eighties. :cry:

Another Pug. Not sure whether to keep it or not. Been in the garage languishing for a couple of years but rode it in this morning after a quick fettle yesterday and it rides really nicely was my dads from late 80's early 90's bought for lejog.
Full RSX groupset and columbus tubing few storage scrapes but nothing major.
Any info and rough price would be very much welcome. seen loads of Premiers on the bay that fetch about £120 on a good day.

Cheers
