BTW, I was eyeballing your Chesini last week on Flickr (because of the link with Van Herwerden); very nice!
I'm not that bothered...
The Chesini was a beauuty that i bought off an old man who cried when it went...
here''s another van Herwerden
and the link with ;loads of pics /info
and his brother:
here's one well known to Wouter
and one of the best ones I ever owned..
sorry wrong link:http://www.flickr.com/photos/4128420...7631893773058/
this is the right one..
Here's an example of a 1970 Gazelle Champion Mondial in a rare brown colour..
Very early Campagnolo groupset on a rare Verhoeven ..

This was a racer probably doubling up as a winter cyclocross bike...these were very expensive around the early 60's and cyclocross was not as common as it is nowadays..the spokes are soldered (like trackwheels)
on fiamme sprint rims -very lightweight!
the stem is an adjustable Ambrosio Super Corsa+bars..quite rare
canti's were already made in the 50's..
What an amazing bike, I´d love to have such a nice, large, Verhoeven. Dutch Cyclocross pioneer Manus Brinkman rode on Verhoeven, the amazing image here shows him in the mid ´60s, although the bike seems different from the one in your pictures(the forkcrown for example). It´s hard to tell though.
did you see his Gazelle brinkman bike?
I think it's a different bike..do you know where this pic was taken?
ps I got this for sale at the moment -
it fits in with this tread...

According to the caption it's the 1965 cyclocross "Katerkoers" in sportpark Duinhorst te Wassenaar. Weirdly I just rode past there earlier today, shaking down my newly built up Gazelle Champion Mondial Cyclocross bike:
thanks Eddie for posting these bikes and the info on hem.
@rob: nice to finally see this bike, with the Campy parts and awesome custum saddle. Absolutely sublime, still super jealous... You ARE allowed to ride this on the RRvV with road tires you know. I saw a Gios Torino cross bike or two last year there.
But here it is, my ca. 1985 Gazelle Champion Mondial Cyclocross:
I'd feel bad for the regular AA if I took it's rugged brother to Oudenaarde. But I guess the gravel tyres that are on there now wouldn't even need to change. Still, I'm planning giving the old one a slight overhaul for the RetroRonde. I think I'll take the CX to Amerongen in april, will you be there too?
Holy shjite thats a nice gazelle cyclo. Is is a frame from MP some months ago? I am also working on a cantilever project to be quite honest...
Would a raleigh that was made in gezelle be considered Dutch ? Or has Dutch got todo with styling too ?
The 'Amstel' paint scheme makes it quite similar to the two cx bikes used in the early '80s gazelle catalogues:
Latest addition to the stable. A 78 AA frame built mostly Super Record. Forty miles in and I like it.
