Rounding out today—and the week for that matter—with some high-brow, resto-vintage goodness: Jason’s Dawes Galaxy. I’m not sure what I like more, the gorgeous bike, or the gorgeous zero depth-of-field photography work. Both work well together to make to a beautiful finish to the week. I also love the way the upward tilt of the drops matches the upward tilt of the saddle.
Noted in the message below, this bike was on ebay recently, but because my slow turnaround time, it’s already been sold.
Here’s an old 10 speed I couldn’t resist getting. I talked a stranger into trading me even for the fairly new bike I was riding at the time.
I built it with shimano 600 drive train parts. The bars are wrapped in velo cloth and then coated in several layers of shellac.
You can see more pics of this OTS on ebay. It’s listed in the OTS on ebay section.
