This is my Dawes Stratos I picked up late last year.
It's been fully restored with everything replaced, repaired, overhauled, greased, tweaked and fettled except the paint.
I've even reinstated the 105 downtube shifters n place of the STi's someone had fitted at one time or another.
I wanted to leave the paint original as it's a factory custom finish that I simply couldn't afford to replicate, and anyway I really like it's patina.
