January Workshop Day

While walking his dog one morning, a neighbor wondered what was on the underwater end of a bicycle wheel protruding from murky water and debris in a neglected stretch of the Muddy River in Brookline, Mass. Have you ever been so tempted? It might pay to find out. In this case, it was a 1949 Dawes Courier: Reynolds 531db, Williams chainset, GB Hiduminium brakes, and Dunlop Special Lightweight rims. The V-CC New England Section devoted its annual workshop day to resurrecting this sunken treasure.
