Please feel free to ask any questions, or send any comments! Does the Galaxy truly live up to its reputation? I replaced the bars, bar end shifters and aero type brake levers with the cables wrapped under the handlebar tape.

The re are some lovely touches such as the flat fork crown. I am beginning the restoration of a 1971 Dawes Galaxy. These Japanese parts of the day, though not as effortless as some of their European rivals, still feel tough and functional, standing the test of time. But after examining this no-name frame, this is an early 1970s Gitane Super Corsa frame. Standard outside diameter accommodates standard lugs and clamp-on parts such as front derailers, pulleys and other cable guides, pump pegs, etc. I have sold many of these and people seem genuinely pleased with them.

The frame comes complete with a good Suntour h eadset. Handbuilt, Raleigh Road Ace road frameset. Another feature of the Super Corsa are the Campagnolo 1010 dropouts.

I am about to start cycle touring again and have dug out my Dawes Galaxy. I custom cut a box specific for your bike and pack it up securely. The gear shifters mounted on the bars are great for first time cyclo-tourists because you can still control the bike while changing gear. We have other master pieces like a Rene Herse. Down tube water bottle bosses, and rack mount bosses on the upper seat stays. Every frame that I sell is expertly packed so there is no funny stuff.

Also, I reuse boxes and packing materials to keep costs down and recycle but if you want new materials I am happy to use such for an additional charge. The Schwalbe Marathon is a popular choice among long-distance riders because of their reliability and low wear rate.
