1948 Raleigh Dawn Tourist

Here are a couple of shots of the 1948 Raleigh Dawn Tourist project. I took these on my cellphone, so the quality is iffy. I plan on getting some better pictures later.

These rubber grips came from Indonesia via eBay. I was skeptical of the quality when I bought them ($15 or so for a pair). However, the quality is very good. The rubber is heavy duty and the features are relatively well-defined. These grips are winners, in my book, at around $15 per pair.

It goes without saying, this bicycle is very heavy. It's a touring car of a bike. But again, I will get some better pictures later.
