Seems to be a Masi-like name split between the US and UK with the Dawes name. Note the Dawes Lightning models here http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/road_bikes.htm

and the Dawes site that Don Wilson cited at http://www.dawescycles.com/ which doesn't list a Lightning model.

Larry Osborn said "... Dawes went out of business sometime in the 80s. The current company, which I think appeared in the early 90s, purchased the rights to the name, and apparently some of the model names, but that's all they purchased. No other connection to the previous company, ..."
