59cm Dawes Equinox c.1989 Vintage Audax / Lightweight Touring Bike



The Dawes Equinox was a great Audax machine and was in fact the pre-cursor to the Dawes Giro 600. This one's from 1989, and comes complete with a rare 21 speed RSX100 group. A fantastic, reliable fast tourer for someone who doesn't want an all-out rando/touring bike.

It's in amazing original condition, and as with all our bikes, it's been fully stripped, inspected & professionally polished & re-built. The frame is straight & true without any dents or dings - please inspect the photos for cosmetic condition as we photograph the bikes so you can see the exact condition of the bike before purchasing.
