    1978 Dawes Super Galaxy pics

    Well I haven't cleaned it yet, but because we all like before / after pics here goes!

    Overall look -






    Missing Reynolds sticker - (spot the hole near pump braze-on?) :-(
    Rear dropout - the rack is mounted outside both mudguard stays, is this normal / strong enough?
    Bar endplug -

    Specs :

    Levers - Weinmann suicide
    Front brake - Weinmann Vainqueur 610
    Rear Brake - Weinmann 750 Vainqueur 999
    Shifters - Suntour Power Shifter
    FD & RD - Suntour Cyclone
    Bars - GB alloy ('Mil Remo' endplugs)
    Stem - GB forged
    Pedals - Kyokuto Top Run (Made in Japan)
    Cranks - TA Specialites
    Seatpost - 26.3mm BIRMALUX (see earlier thread)
    Saddle - Brooks B17
    Hubs - Normandy
    Rims - Rigida 27 * 1 1/4 alloy
    Mudguards - ESGE Made in W Germany

    Thats it, so is it all original? pedals and bars seem suspect to me for an English tourer.

    Cheers, Prav

    I love that bike, it might partly be the name and the color.
    How much did it cost?
    And the new one is just as cool.

    Yeah the colour rocks! it has a subtle fade - where the decals are on the TT & ST is a bit lighter..

    I bought it (including a d-lock and 2 keys!!) from Gumtree (Craigslist for Londoners)
    Been searching ages for a big frame!
    (it was at least rideable unlike the peugeot I bought a few weeks back for 12 pounds..)
