Sorry about the delay getting this up i have been quite busy recently !
Here it is though my Dawes Shadow Fixie
It has a reynolds 500 frame Mach omega track wheels and Sturmey Archer cranks
Read on for more pictures
I bought the Dawes at a local market recently as a full racer with all the trimmings mudguards etc but it was in a bit of a sorry state the wheels were bent and crushed in places and the mudguards were knackered so i stripped it back to the frame and went for a grey and white colourscheme to blend with the detailing on the frame.
One of the things I found for putting on the Dawes was this white half link chain and Sturmey Archer chainset. I think they really set of the bike updating the bike to a similar spec to that of the original
I went with the Mach omega wheels again but in white this time to go with the coloursheme i had in mind. The Mach Omega wheels are really nice and lightweight and are really well built !
I noticed the handlebars that came on the bike were a bit bent after unwrapping and removing parts so i decided to cut them shorter and flip them in the hipster style. they are really comfortable to ride and look the part too.
The frame did come with a bit of damage to it but it is merely cosmetic and does not effect the frame in any way
