Hi Cbiazi

All I can say is that Dawes bikes are based in my hometown of Birmingham UK, I don't think they make them here any more though.

However, I would suggest you sign up and post the pictures at http://www.retrobike.co.uk where there are many knowledgeable people who may be able to help.

Good luck

Rich
