Two Old Blisters From Across the Pond

Today's finds: A pair of filthy old blisters. Clouds of dust and crispy tires.

An old too small green bike (but with a really nice vintage Brooks saddle) and an orange bike that looks a bit more serious: tubular tyres that are still holding air!
Nice detailing on alloy bars.
Both bikes have Stronglight cranks & chainrings and Reynolds alloy tubes.
The orange one has Campagnolo hubs.
Weinmann brakes on both bikes.

Approximate age & value ??

dawes looks to be a galaxy model of the early 1970's. three main frame tubes are reynolds plain guage.

poulidor the more interesting machine. likely a contract build. perhaps made in st. etienne. also looks to be an early 1970's mount. this is an intersting find.

will leave value estimates to the experts...

Both nice bikes. Dawes Galaxy I would want $200 for.

Poulidor, I'm a sucker for any bike with a racers portrait on it. $225-250.
