    Great looking bike, hillcountry! How many bikes from that era are still with their original owners, in such good condition?!

    Very interested, if frame is in fact 21"/52-3cm.

    I've been looking for a Zieleman for a while, since seeing some neat ones in the NL.

    Messaging...also may need some facilitation!
