I saw a good condition 1965 DAWES Roadbike today for sale, new tires and tubes, refurbed brakes and mechanics, rust free, paint is original (brown and gold) in ok-good shape, original head badge in great condition...what kind of value would something like this bring

Probably as much as you ever hoped and imagined!

There is a vintage forum here (http://bikeforums.net/forumdisplay.php?f=181). Your question will probably get better answers there.

Im from Birmingham UK,
I worked in a bike shop last year which did a lot of restoring/selling old road bikes.
most were 70's-80's but some were as early as 1930's
most of the 70/80's ones were Dawes, 60s ones Raleigh, earlier ones Royal Enfield/Hercules.
We sold em for around £60 / $120 each
Although I am aware the same sort of bikes would fetch twice that in london where it is super trendy to ride a vintage road bike.
I guess Dawes might be worth more in the US too.
