dating note -

the model 99 chainset it wears is second generation

change from first to second occurred in 1977

if one takes the cycle to be "all of a piece" it is unlikely to be earlier than 1978

Londoner is the model. Dawes is the manufacturer.

Those components are consistent with another example recently for sale on my local CL. I suspect they're original.
