    Claud Butler Dalesman

    Here's a recent build that I thought I'd share. A 1980s Claud Butler Dalesman Touring – 65cm. I'm not sure of the precise year. I would guess 83-84... something like that. I am looking for a rear fender lamp, if someone has one to part with, let me know.

    I love the component selection.I dig the Tektro/Cane creek levers. Those hoods look very comfy.

    I considered putting the original Weinmanns back on, but it is hard to beat the comfort of those beefy hoods; not to mention they work better too!

    Now that's what I'm looking for and in that wonderful 65cm size. What a beauty!

    Looks like a nice powdercoat job too; not too thick.

    It's a pretty good powdercoat job. I did find a hair that was over the color and under the clearcoat. Like a mosquito preserved in amber.

    Amazingly beautiful job. I can ride for years in California, and not see a bike as nice as this. You should move...

    Those Simplex retrofriction are the best; totally the lightest action. Kudos!!!

    BTW, who's your hirsute powdercoater?
