melofelo says...worth hanging on to the mudguards for wet or damp weather cycling...these small wheels do like to throw water and dirt where you least want it.
melofelo says...makes sense to grab a few 500a tyres until you're ready to strip it down..pretty cheap to find on ebay . I'd leave the mudguards on too if you plan to use it before the stripdown...getting the nut of the bolt that holds the rear mudguard to the frame is an exercise in patience..(think dremel)..
Eddie G says...Was going to buy cheap 500A tyres just to get running, but finding those 451 rims pushes new wheels up the project plan. Thinking of self-build to save cost. Nice craft activity for a winter evening!
roadrash says...Just going to enjoy as is for the timebeing . Well at least untill ive finished the twenty anyhow. I may just clean up and service and leave it with its battle scars . It really isnt too bad.
roadrash says...hi eddie, what do have planned for it ??
melofelo says...the original cranks on these Dawes often come up well with a bit of Brasso and elbow grease.
I think that may be a 48T crank...which might be worth saving if there isn't much wear on the teeth. You can wrap a new chain around it and check for gaps before discarding..
Have fun with the project! :o)
