So it's been there for a week. Stolen--Abandoned or Dumped----I do not know but I would think Dumped as it could not have been ridden to this field in the condition it was in.
Got it home and started to look at it and it is in not too bad a condition. Plenty of Rust but other than the rear wheel none of it is corrosion.

Size might be on the minimum for me but So is the OCR. Plenty of work to do and find out about it but nothing there tells me that it is not worth working on.
It is a Dawes Galaxy and appearsto have Suntour running Gear. 5 speed Freehub and 27x1" 1/4 tyres. Tubing is Reynolds 531 and the bike is not overheavy---or won't be by the time the racks and bolt ons have gone.
I'll inform the Police that I have found it but bikes of this age and in this condition will never be claimed.
So looks like a Spring Project for me- and it may be N+1
Or it may even be worth a full renovation to bring back to concours condition.
