I feel like we've all sort of hammered at this one for a while, with some of the heavy-hitters knowledge- and history-wise like verktyg etc., and it seems like every time someone hammers it down, an exception pops up. Two steps forward, one step back. The exceptions seem to fall in the '71 - '73 year range best I've been able to tell, and there's zero consistency through those years.

Later on, I brought to the party a bare frame which possibly had a rear brake bridge at one time. As bare-frame, with Campy dropouts, nobody here or in two other places I was posting at (then) could definitively say if it was a TdF or SC, and no less than one mentioned there's absolutely no difference in frame weight, geometry, styling, nothing other than the top tube decal and what parts it was assembled with.

But, who knows, we may have some new piece of info turn up tomorrow giving something more definitive. A marking inside the BB shell, fork steerer or head tube or something. I dunno

Interesting looking Dawes. Don't know a lot about them, chrom-moly, real head badge, nice lugs, cottered crank, center pulls, perhaps late 60's? or very early 70's. Chrome stay ends, nice top of seat stays. Great color.

Forgot to mention the brooks saddle, cool water bottle cage, and some type of magistroni knock-off crank(i think). Lol. Looks like a good bike for around $200.

That's not a Brooks, it's a low-grade Vinyl knockoff. Dawes used to build some wonderful bikes; 531 frames, nice lugs, all hand-built. I don't know who owns them now or where they are manufactured, but they are still in business.

Thanks for clarifying the seat, looked suspicious. Galaxy model came out in 1971. My research suggests the early Galaxy used Reynolds 501 straight guage main frame, with hi-ten stays. 501 prolly better for tourer loads anyway? I found a 1982 Galaxy that does list 531 tubes. Company was family owned thru the 1970's, then changed hands a few times. Currently owned by a company named Tandem plc.

Doubly so when the seller's pics deceptively include the wheel that you DON'T get.

Lot of love in this bike, hence the (my opinion) high price. Original owner. https://boston.craigslist.org/bmw/bi...065381934.html

I've got a Dawes Galaxy I use for the occasional ride when I want to go a bit farther than the Schwinn three-speed will go (old Mesinger saddle, only three gears) but still want an upright posture:



I originally bought it to flip, then procrastinated and didn't. After my crash (and subsequent titanium upgrade to my right femur) it came in handy during rehab. I stuck it on my CycleOps in the basement and used it to get range of motion back between physical therapy sessions. Now it's just kind of one of the gang. It doesn't see a ton of use, but I get it out a couple times a month, perhaps.

That's our new boiler (very nice). The work stand is sitting where the old boiler used to reside.

Looks like Mitch Pryor has been there, he does both kinds of tubes like nobody else.

Apparently a rip-off of an actual product (Hovding 3). <- Click the link only if you want to experience a spine-tingling video.

A Fiorelli (actually two)

Same seller. Both seem to have dog's breakfasts for parts. Given all the other stuff (mostly not bikes) for sale, I'm going to guess the seller is either a storage locker scavenger or a pawn shop.

"Steampunk"...you guys are killing me! Awesome Dawes, Smontanaro! Definitely a quality bike that has the "it" factor, despite mid-range components. You can see they were trying to bring high-end bike attributes to the masses. Versus the usual, peddling junk for profit! Two different philosophies there! Sorry to hear about your accident, keep cranking on that Dawes and get back to 100%!

Keep watching this one if you are interested. I think the price has dropped a Benjamin or so in the last month.
