Just finished restoring my uncle's Dawes Stratos, fitted with new virtual chain :)

First picture is my mate Sam riding it Brum to Oxford, prior to strip down, I needed to remove badly faded red and yellow vinyl and repair multiple gashes to frame ( covers with electrical tape ) overhaul bearings where needed etc....lots of painstaking paintwork and polish involved, hope you approve of end result! :-)
frame and fork: 531 tubing
Crank and seatpost: SR
Brakes: Weinmann
derailleurs and shifters: Shimano SIS 600
Rims: Alexa
