About Me

I bought the pictures Kingpin new in 1975 in England, As you see from the picture it has been highly modified. I recently put a video describing its evolution on youtube. The address is below. If that doedsn't work the video is titled "Dawes Kingpin Conversion Video"

I have just purchased a 1972 Raleigh Twenty in original condition -even the tyres!

I am a retiree living in Ajax Ontario and bicycles and bicycling are a major interest.

Regards,

Roy

Since I was looking for performance, mudguards were not a consideration. I have just completed a total refurbish of the bike which has included 20 x 13/8" (35mm) Primo Comets, The original Roadlites were 451 x 28mm. I've just measured the width of the fork and chainstays at the tyre radius. It is 50mm+ so you should be fine.

When you put the 451mm rims and wheels onto your Dawes, do you have enough clearance to still have mudguards? What size tyres did you use?
