Ooooh, I find that paintjob curiously alluring :lol: . And remember, 4130 cro-mo is pretty cool stuff. The suspension of your car is made of it - very, very tough stuff!

Lovely looking orginal Dawes

Ive had 2

A 501 Magnum 400 lx

then

The Lx Edge one.

I would say that Dawes did some pretty special paint jobs, but also some average ones as well.


Love the details on this dawes, probably rides better than many more known brands!

Hows the Tandam?

Seatpost isn't bent... I must have a particular nack for taking dodgy photos as I was accused of having a bent seatpost on the proelite too.
