Galli Sport (2nd style)

The Galli Sport is the Galli Criterium enjoying the dubious benefits of downwards ‘range extension’. The Sport was a decent product at a decent price - ideal for your training bike or for your younger sibling who was just starting out in road racing. Interestingly the pulley cage has a different geometry to that on the Criterium - perhaps to make the Sport more suited to a wider freewheel.

I think that this particular example is a later model with an Allen key hanger bolt and Simplex pulley wheels (which I think are original).
