    Very nice looking vintage frame. The ebay picture of the bottom bracket also shows the underside of the cable guide having very little paint wear. Good indication of low mileage.

    Work a little OT or sell a few family heirlooms to help ease the remorse. You did good.

    The crankset isn't mine, it's the bikeforums member who lives in the other half of the house, but I hope for his sake it goes for that much!

    As hard as this is, I think I have to dump my Faggin as well, though I do have enough parts to build up this gazelle on it's own I think I have to thin the heard to justify it.

    Thanks. I think the discussions on here about how great these are is partially responsible for me getting excited about it in the first place. Supposed to be in really good shape and there is apparently a really light hue of green to the paint. The shipping was unbelievably cheep and I double checked with the seller who said it was correct and he has lots of experience and feed back shipping frames to NA so I snapped it up.

    Now I need to figure out what year it is. The question I am asking myself is do I put my coblato brakes with late model super record kit on it or put old style super record brakes on it?

    Lovely frame. Never seen that kind of brake/chainstay bridge. It has a 70mm British BB? That exists?

    YES! I got a Raleigh SC Mk II that way.

    It had a couple of hours left so I outbid the current hi-bidder by $5.

    And that gave me the "win"!

    Fortunately, it's my size and it's all original and in good shape. A good clean/tune and I can get my $$ back,......like any a that'll ever happen!

    Excellent "new" frame! Glad the paint's in good shape!

    Take heart...you could have spent way more money on THIS Gazelle!!!

    Nice frame 'cyclotoine'

    Build it up with Nuovo or Super Record. Both would be ideal.



    ...but if you feel you have "overextended" yourself, then I'm sure some lucky C & V 'er would help ease your suffering.

    hehe welcome to the dark side.
    I think you're going to find you have one excellent riding bike there.
    Either full or semi wrap around seat stays (can't quite make it out from photos),
    a bike made for northern classics and cobbles on the koppenberg (or the Muur).
    My experience is that the dutch bikes are built for less than perfect roads, they
    really seem to smooth things out more than say an italian frame.
    And now you can use a Porta Catena !
    Nice bike, AA frame, will work very well with super record gruppo.

    Oh yeah you probably want to read this:

    You shouldn't have bought that! Now I will want one too. Why on earth did you have to move in next door anyway?!? Don't worry, the cut from my Record 151 bcd cranks will at least cover some of the shipping costs. I promise not to tell Valley....muhahaha....

    i think that frame you just won is from the late 70's.

    Congratulations, it is a very nice frame.
    It should be from the late 70's. I got an 83 Gazelle Champion Mondial without the chrome and normal bridges. It's a very nice ride. Mine has the same colour and I even bought it NOS from the same seller last year.
    I will make some pictures of mine later this week.

    i think i did that to myself this morning. some damn hubs. beat the high bidder by one bid thinking surely he'll come back and bid up a little higher...the hours are counting down and i'm thinking i just might win them. i mean i'll build a nice wheelset because i already have some rims in that drilling....but it'd be cheaper to trade the rims and use some hubs i already got...good thing i've been moving along all those parts i never use...so i can buy more parts

    Hey, I have a gazelle too.

    But I will never admit my total number on hand though. That would be telling.

    Looks older than 81, appears to be an AA (chrome and beefer BB), I'm guessing more like a 77-78 frame perhaps with the butterfly rear brake bridge. It could be that the AA's were using that brake bridge later than the AB frames, but my frame doesn't have that and I'm fairly confident in a pre 81 date for it as well.

    Yes, it's an AA-frame (short dropouts w/o eyelets, stiffer roto BB, scissor-like chainstay bridge).
    Should be 1980 or younger (script font on the TT).
    Chrome and braze-ons aren't model specific, just options for any Champion Mondial. And they all have british threading with 68 mm BB, so the eBay ad wasn't accurate.
    These are *VERY* nice frames, I have this one that's similar to cyclotoine's, just much greener . Mine is a late 1977 / early 1978 AA, with butterfly brake bridge, full wraparound seatstays and the sturdier fork crown. Very stiff for a tall (62cm c-c) steel frame.
    [For sale BTW.]

    This bike is apparently 0.5cm shorter in top tube and seattube than my faggin. I expect it will make little difference... Everything everyone has said has made me feel good about this. Thanks guys!

    That's a fine looking frameset. It'll be a real looker when it's built up. I was watching it on eBay and wasn't shocked by the selling price. I was tempted to toss out a bid but I've pulled in my horns lately on Ebay auctions. Congratulations.

    According to the link (thanks marty) the bike is post 1981 when they started using 7 digit serial numbers. I does not say that the first is the year (as with the previous sequence) but I think that makes this a 1983. which seems about right.
