Hello DeepdalePete,
I am looking to buy a Dawes Super Galaxy touring bike. A friend of mine is a long standing member of this forum and sent me the link to your bike for sale. I have joined this evening but don't know how else to contact you about meeting you to see the bike, I live in Somerset so not too far from you.

The details and photos of the bike are very clear, thank you, I am serious and would like to see the bike before I buy.

I don't know how to contact you to set up a viewing, there may be some way through the forum but haven't found it yet.

Many thanks,
PJ McDermott

How very civil. Nice to see a pleasant exchange of buying and selling on the internet! Sounds as if the Dawes found a good home and everyone is happy. I enjoyed reading that. Thank you.
