hi im selling my very first roadbike to fund my new on-one 29r
ive been using it to get fit again but now the snows here ive been getting back out onto the trails its labelled up as a dawes galxy but have been told otherwise it has been resprayed fire red and a good job of it too

this is what someone on another forum suggested to me
Quote:
oof the road bike is lovely! i think it might be a pre buy out/sell out holdsworth because they had the same trade mark conjoined seat stays looped over the seat tube. very nice if it is.

ebw cranks 2 speed

the silver spd pedals in pic are not included in the sale

all in the bike could do with some new wheels ive been told 700c will fit because there is alot of brake adjustment?

i dont know how much its worth but to keep the mods happy ill put some wild price down of £200 offers are welcome however silly they are?

cheers tom

My 1963 HQ frame uses the same Nervex lugging which I think was popular at the time - it has the same wrapover seatstays also, so I wouldn't assume that makes it a Holdsworth. Mercian offered the wrapovers in the 70s as well, I think.

Nice innit.

Lots of builders used wrap-over seat stays in the 70's, and you're right, Nervex Pro lugs were in everyday use then as well. Very difficult to establish the maker unless you have the frame number at all? Might give a clue.
