picked this up today it a Dawes bike but not sure what model as no decals left other than head badge and very faded dawes on down tube and some very small writing which is unreadable coming of that at an angle > the reynolds 531st sticker and reynolds 531 fork stickers still there .

i presumed it was a Galaxy but not sure . rear hub and brakes are dated 84 and 85 so geuss mid 80's . 27" wheels .

as can be seen in pic rack lugs on rear triangle . paintwork is poor so ideal winter commuter

any ideas

Maybe a "Sterling", which was I think a model down from a Galaxy,

had a bit more of a look at it today and in the right light you can just make out some faded sticker writing on top tube that looks to say Galaxy , so i am happy to think its Galaxy
