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.

Velo Orange fenders
Resprayed: powdercoat & clearcoat; I did the contrasting headtube

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!!!

Hi there,
I have a similar sort of frame that I am trying to date. Would you be able to share the serial number? Beautiful bike!
