I'm looking for information about a Dawes Galaxy. It is from the early 70s and has Alvit/Huret components with a Brooks saddle. I believe that the headbadge says it was made in England. I would consider selling it for $100 if someone were interested.

   RE:MISC:   Suburban posted by JimW. on 1/17/2002 at 5:29:14 PM
For that vintage, it should be on the right rear dropout.
If it's not there, check in the headbadge area.

   RE:MISC:   Suburban posted by ken on 1/18/2002 at 8:26:18 PM
Left rear dropout, I think he means...

Yes, that's what I meant. Thanks Ken. I have even more trouble with port and starboard.
