I humbly submit my '94 Dawes Special Edition no 10 of 250. Owned from new and has been through some ghastly incarnations over the years but now restored back to OE spec.

One more Dawes?

The one and only Dawes "The Edge eXTRa" from 1992 - Reynols 531 Designer Select and mixed with a M900 / M910 group.

Pimped with a rare Reynolds 753 handlebar.

The are British Companies though, does it make a difference if they were Fabricated in the Far East....?

Also we have no Pace, Roberts, Yates, etc....?

Yes, for sure.

The Dawes fillet brazing method was not so smooth like Roberts, Yates and ... but more than good enough for me and a hard ride.

It's the first complete fillet brazed MTB frame from Dawes.
