I'm quite happy DMs are not 'known'.
Much cheaper to buy that way, for the cognoscenti; )
A bit like Viscounts with their "Death Fork Syndrome".
Puts lots of people off, & keeps prices low when you buy....

Maybe we should have a dedicated Dave Marsh thread here on RB to showcase them a little?
Mine has a 531DB frame, but very nice to ride: )

Your wheels need to have some skinny amber wall tyres. I have had the same clearance issues and found that Panaracer 27x1" give the retro narrow look with good clearance.

27" tyres are a PITA when it comes to choices IMHO.
I'm reverting to 700s soon for that reason. (+ more guard clearances)
I was just experimenting with the possibilities above: )

A tourer needs more than smooth skinnies for practical use as a distance load carrier.

Now reverted to 700s, with guards that fit properly.
More pics soonish!
