New Rides!wspokes

I scored some new rides recently. First up is a cross pic from the fixed gear site. My newly repainted Dawes from ebay. An early 70s (most likely 71) machine.

Here's another Dawes that I also picked up. It is a 50s club racer. Not sure how I will build it up yet.

Another shot of the 50s Red Feather Dawes.
Is that a grease port on the headtube? nmDave Hickey

Yep, it is a grease port. There is also one by the BB as well on the Dawes Red Feather. The Realm rider is a less expensive 70s frameset (the red/blue one) and doesn't have these ports. here is a pic of the Scot.
