Dawes Special Edition, No 10 of 250, came with a certificate signed by the managing director of Dawes! Still have this too. This bike is not listed in any of the Dawes catalogues.

BoTM 2nd place
This was my 3rd MTB (After a Raleigh Amazon & Saracen Tufftrax), bought on December 31st 1993 for £430 (list price £499) I have done over 3,000 miles on this bike over 3 years until it got relegated.
I kept some of the orginal parts but others have been thrown/lost/damaged, but I have been buying replacements over the last few months.
I have a soft spot for this bike as we have been through so much mud together!

New Pictures 19-10-09. Finally finished! Had a quick blast and it's a joy to ride, fast, responsive, brings back lots of memories! It is all back to original, bar the pedals and the tyres
A little play with the pic, highlights the paint scheme quite well!
New Pictures 17-05-09. Built the new Campag rim on the back today (haven't built a wheel for over 14 years but it turned out good). NOS Leader Pro front tyre.
Still need Vetta SL saddle and shifters that work!
Here is a pic of it a good few years ago, probably 1994, the only picture i have, took me ages to balance it on the toeclip!
