I'd be so grateful for any help in identifying my bicycle.
I purchased this Dawes racer last year and it was in a sorry state. I have restored certain components such as handlebars and pedals to what I hope they would have originally looked like, and replaced the gears and brakes with quality vintage parts.
Internet research leads me to believe the bike is 1970s, since the headbadge has a circle; half pink and half green. The frame is a green-gold colour. Under the BB is stamped the code CH9638.
The bike is lightweight and now runs like a dream. I'd dearly like to know more about it!
Thanks for any expert advice in advance.
