Nervex-lugged mystery bike!

*******EDIT: It's a Dawes Galaxy!*******

Hey guys!

I picked up this beauty this morning. She's a little rough around the edges, but has a bit of old world charm. I'm trying to solve the mystery. Who made it?

When researching lugs, I've found a few bikes that use this style of Nervex lug, but they seem pretty uncommon. The dropouts are telling me the bike is older, but I'm shooting into the wind on this one. The seat stays seem pretty unique and could be a givaway. There are no decals nor headbadge, but I took the measurements - pieces to the puzzle!

Any clues? The serial number is what appears to be 'R3003', stamped on the bottom bracket. The tubes and dropouts are also stamped with a number, like '5', or '0'. It looks like a more modern sealed BB and crankset, so I don't think it is French (wild guess). Italian?

An interesting bike, I can't wait to get some bar tape on it, a new tube in the front and give it a go.

So...anyone knows what the old girl is? Thanks!
