The Dawes Super Galaxy has always been known as arguably the best touring bike of its generation and with Reynolds 531 frame and forks it is a lightweight and very comfortable bike. This is a great "do it all" bike from an era when we only had one bike! Perfect for commuting, long weekend rides, a quick jaunt to the pub or for one of the more challenging vintage rides.

As a 17 year old the bike I always wanted was a Dawes Super Galaxy and it took me over 30 years to get one. I got my first one with the intention of riding Velo Retro and Eroica Britannia, I did do Velo Retro last year and the bike was superb and comfortably got me round 85KM in the Lake District albeit it was slightly too big.

I then bought this particular bike which was almost identical other than being a 22.5 frame. This is in very good and original condition for a 30+ year old bike.

I believe it was manufactured in c, 1986 and therefore qualifies for Eroica and whilst it has the odd scratch and spot of surface rust it is generally in excellent condition for a 32 year old bike. The frame and forks are Reynolds 531 and everything works as it should, the gears change smoothly and the brakes are in good working order, you could easily use this as an everyday bike, for touring or just for vintage bike events. It has the big advantage of a triple crankset range of gears which are are Shimano and it has a Stronglight crankset.

It has original mudguards and I have fitted it with new MKS Sylvan pedals along with Christophe toe clips and straps. And of course it has a beautiful Brooks leather saddle.
