Dawes | Halfords "Gold Wing" - anyone heard of it?

Around 1984, my parents bought me my first road bike. It was called "Gold Wing" and bought from Halfords (US equivalent of Walmart but I think the bikes were better at Halfords) for 200 (I guess it was a fair amount of money back then).

But I cant remember if it was made by Dawes, or Halford's own brand. Can any one help me out here? I Google'd but nothing's there.

It was an oyster/gold color with mudguards, double cranks and 7 speed rd. I didn't know much about bikes back then (apart from some bikes are for roads, others are for mtb'ing). After about 5 years, the chainstay on the chain side cracked near the seatstay joint so it leads me to believe it's probably not a Dawes.
