    New arrival: Dawes Kingpin

    I bought this a week ago or so and collected it today: a 1977 purple 20" 3 speed shopping bike. All original and intact, although the 3 speed hub needs a bit of work to shift properly. It's got new tyres so has had some work recently. Also there's quite a few scratches that'll need paint. Well...

    Dawes Galaxy

    About a year ago I bought a Dawes Galaxy Mixte frame from @biggs682 Today I rode home a complete bike! It has some new parts and some vintage bits - I wanted shiny bits! With a lot of help from my friends at the bike shop I built it myself. It's going to need a few adjustments I think & I...

    Dawes Stirling brake question.

    ] So I picked this frame up recently,lovely looking paint job, done by Bob Jackson. There are some sticky out bars that I’m assuming are for the brakes. What would be a good type to look out for to suit this lovely frame. They kind of remind me of mountain bike brake holders, is that what...

    Touring - which bike? Old Dawes vs modern B'twin.

    So the last two tours I've been on I've ridden my first road bike love, my B'twin Triban 3. We've been to Wales and Scotland together, here's a photo of it in the Cairngorms: Ah, happy memories :) In the past 6 months or so there's a new steed in town, my 1984 Dawes Galaxy. Of course, this...

    Tandem Resurrection - Dawes Super Galaxy Twin

    Bought this tandem way back in '88/89, and had fun on it with MBH for several years until kids came along, and time was dedicated to them. They never developed into bike riders unfortunately, and I couldn't sell them so the tandem has languished in a couple of sheds for 20 years. In the meantime...

    Honest! I only went in for some loose ball bearings but a week later I went back and bought it.:ohmy: It was the colour and the head badge that did it!

    Possible New Project - Dawes Ultra Plus

    I've just got in this evening to find on my doorstep a frame and fork of a Dawes Ultra Plus. My neighbour said yesterday that he might bring it round, and so he did.

    Anyone owned a Dawes Jaguar before?

    I've been offered one (apparently dating from the mid/late '80's) at what I consider to be a real bargain price for a 531 frame, but I'm not very familiar with them and haven't had a ride on one before. I know what a Galaxy rides like (very nicely), but they have 72 degree frame geometry and a...

    Evening, some of you may remember me eyeing up and purchasing a bike I spotted on eBay which I asked about in the eBay thread. Anyway, after a few weeks with it, here it is :) Unfortunately it has a dent in the top tube but it's pretty minimal. For £35 I'm pretty happy :) So there's a few...

    Vintage Dawes Galaxy.

    Something I got last week so was cleaning it up a little but noticed it has a gnotti hub on the front. Both rims are lightweight Dunlops 27 x 1 1/4. Unusual to see 4 cogs on rear wheel but not as a block.
