it's in pretty nice shape. it's been ridden for sure but that's the way i like 'em. not so nice that i'm real worried about scratches or anything.

Nice bike, but isn't it a bit small for you?
12-01-07, 07:55 PM
nah. that's about what i ride.
my bob jackson is only 58cm ctt, 56cm toptube.

and this was a 62cm c2c on the seat, 59cm tt....the seat was actually a little too high there too.
That's nice. Cuda2k will be jealous. Well, maybe not..:D

well, i rode the Miele on a nice 40mile ride today, then just pulled all the parts off of it :D
it's a hodge podge of parts. dura ace 7400 rd, hubs, brakes, levers, suntour front der. because the da7400 is for braze on mount. i couldn't get the campy shifters off so they stayed on for now.
ultegra 170mm cranks...they cheap on ebay.
cinelli 100mm stem and crit. bars.
seatpost that fit was 26.8mm.....
look at my flickr album to see other pics...the link is in one of my other posts in this thread...click the pic.
i'm going to ride this thang...
Very nice Gazelle (little jealous, but still like my paint scheme more but I'm biased). Looks like about a mid-80's frame to me. Decals and lugs look similar to my ca 79 frame, but the fork is later. I haven't measured my top tube length, but I'm guessing mine is a very similar size to yours as well, maybe a size larger.

yeah, i think i got it from the same guy you got yours from, he said he thought it was early 80's, also said something about a few others in texas that have gazelles.
mine is an AB. the brake bridge is kinda high, i had to move the pads all the way down on the rear caliper to get the pads on the rims, but they work. i was surprised that this frame needs a 26.8 seat post too.
your gazelle is nice.
