i guess i would also pick this baby up in France http://stuyfssportverhalen.wordpress...-vlooienmarkt/. for non-dutchmen, run google translate. i know a guy who has a ronde van Europa but in an even more amazing paintjob. but i simply love this red one with pinstriping

That's a beautiful bike. Shame about the turkey levers, but that should be an easy fix.

pullup 10-07-13 08:20 AM

I like both bikes on this page so far :) An extremely well preserved Sparta and then this little Amsterdam wonder of a classic racing bike

Joco is very high on my list of bikes to own along with a Jabo....

that one is very nice I really like the box lining...

Hi,

I just found one of these in Cambodia would you believe!?! Gazelle Sport Solide
It was sitting disused outside an ice cream place and I gave them $10 for it.
I don't have any tools here so I'll take it to a LBS (of sorts!) and get them to fix it up - if my language is up to it!

Got the Sport Solide fixed up by local mechanic in Phnom Penh. I asked them to clean it up, replace the mudguards, change the saddle and fix up the breaks. It came back with a pretty well matched re-spray after the rust was cleaned off - and they did't mess up the decals. The lamp was replaced too, but it isn't wired up! Runs pretty good too. The Cambodian staff at my work can't believe I paid $10 for the bike and then $30 to get it fixed up, but one Dutch guy recognised it as a Gazelle from about 10 meters and said it would last for years.

Any suggestions of how old it is? A previous thread estimated 1988 - would that be about right?

Zieleman 10-17-13 01:14 AM

Great story AliH! To think that a Gazelle ended up in Cambodia... Great bike, but unless there's a serial nr it's going to be hard to know exactly what year it's from. But judging from the decals, I say it's earlier than 1988.

Cees Jonkers
 
Cees Jonkers is a former team mechanic who built frames and sold them from his shop in Rotterdam between 1980 and 2005.

This one is a Jonkers Super in touring mode and has serial number 271157. As it's a 57 cm frame, the actual serial number could be 2711.

http://www.mijnalbum.nl/Grotefoto-DVAZZIMU.jpg

Apparently it was painted by the Deege brothers:

There's a nut on the fork. As it doesn't have any other fittings for lights or a generator, I'm not sure what this is for:

http://www.mijnalbum.nl/Grotefoto-VFVFP4MP.jpg

It's a bit of a frankenbike: FD and rear wheel hub are Campagnolo, RD and brakes are Shimano, shifters are SunTour, the (home-made) triple crankset is a Sugino, headset is a Miche and the front wheel hub is a Maxi-Car:

Another Jonkers
 
About ten years junior to the one above, I would think. Shimano 1055, upgraded to 8-speed, hence the 600 shifters. Serial number 9331.

Loving that red tourer! It needs a good brooks or ideale though, can't imagine riding 25 km+ on a gel saddle.

pullup 10-21-13 05:25 AM

Yeah the tourer is the nicest of the pair.

A couple of years ago when I was working in Rotterdam I got this set of 'his and hers' Jonkers bikes from a local connection.

First the ladies bike which i still got.
It was almost NOS save a couple of scratches and tiny spots from storage in the shed.

http://i43.tinypic.com/ke8dwp.jpg

The owner told me this 'wijnrood' was the trademark colour of Cees Jonkers bikes. I have seen some more Jonkers bikes in the meantime but never this colour.
It had a full Shimano 600 Arabesque groupset of which swapped the brakes for normal 600 because these do work.

I swapped these bars in the meantime for a tourer style bar

You can see Maarten, it has the same decal from the paintshop as your bike :)

pullup 10-21-13 05:39 AM

Next the mens bike, a little more used which turned out just a little to big for me at 57 so i flipped it to a friend.
This was apparently one of the first bikes Cees tried out with internal cable routing.

http://i42.tinypic.com/2gulftc.jpg

It is actually the same 'wijnrood' colour as the girls bike and it had a more eclectic groupset on it with campagnolo nuovo record wheels, a suntour crank, shimano derailleurs and gipiemme brakes

I posted it a while back in another thread because of the Colnago type lugs it had.

Yes, the red tourer is definitely the more interesting of the two, and yes, it would benefit from a rebuild with a nice vintage touring group set and some leather. If only it were an inch or two taller!:(

plenty of other fish in the sea, but I guess you know that already :innocent: I guess that's why I keep hoarding those nice saddles, racks and long cage RD's, for when a frame like this comes my way.

AliH 10-29-13 12:16 AM

Still trying to date my Gazelle Sport Solide in Cambodia. The only number I could find was between the seat stays and it was 541067580, does that sound about right? Any serial number experts out there?

I have emailed Gazelle to see if they have a record.

Yesterday picked up an Aandewiel http://www.klassiekeracefiets.info/2.../09/aandewiel/. The last 2 years I havent seen many of these popping up on the classified market, neither online pictures. So therefore more pictures of my fresh Aandewiel.http://www.flickr.com/photos/dutchbi...7637080503496/
The rear mech has patent 78 and the Brooks B17 Professional saddles is marked 78 too. The framenumber starts with 79 and. Its the 6th bike of that year. The current owner of the Aandewiel shop, 3rd Piet (i guess after reading the above mentioned article), one day told me that his father and his grandpa Piet only used to build a hand full or a dozen bikes per year.
The pinstriping is really, really old school (I have seen it alot on 50-60s bikes not on late 70 bikes) and I like it. Bought it from a mid 30s guy who got out of one of his fathers's friends legacy. The bike is in pristine condition and has some really nerdy red details like red valvecaps and red bar end plugs matching the red pinstriping and decals. Also fancy Aandewiel transfers on the rims.
....But oh my god I am really fond of this one!

Zieleman 10-29-13 09:45 AM

Amazement fills my rainy day to a simple sigh of awe for your most recent catch my friend. What I mean is: holy sh#te what a fantastic find! I got some spare time on my hands, so let's meet up for a touchy-feely greet with my hands on that rare piece of equipment you got there. Beers are on me

Wow, wow, wow. and the condition is amazing, even the bartape seems like it was done yesterday. Was it restored before you bought it?

AliH,

On this website I read: from 1981 on all Gazelles have a 7 digit number where the 1st number represents the year. So in case your bike is later there should be a 7 digit number somewhere. Between 74 and 81 the serial starts with two letters and max 6 digits. First digit = year (last digit). With earlier Gazelles the age has to be calculated using a formula.

Very nice, Wouter. Can other people rent your timemachine for a modest payment?

non-fixie 10-29-13 01:54 PM

Hey, that's my size! :) Well done, Wouter.
