Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

There is a vintage forum here. 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.
