Also, I've landed a 1959 Raleigh Dawn(?) Tourist. What was the Brooks saddle model to be found on this bike?

I buy my spare Brooks parts from Wallingford Bicycle Parts

I would guess that a Dawn Tourist came with either a B72 or a B66.

Webshots is bailing out, if you find any of my posts with corrupt picture files and want to see them corrected please let me know. :(
