    As they say here in Japan, "O-daiji-ni kudasai". Without a translation: it means to encourage your best of health. Please be patient. My sister has had similar surgery. It could take some time and...

    A few years ago, I rebuilt an Atlantis for a friend. [see above] I had total control over the parts that were used. Most recently, it got new 700c Grand Bois clincher rims and modern, sealed-bearing...

    I am basically a maths moron, although ratios, geometric progression and some similar blah-blah make sense sense to me.

    THE PAINT ON YOUR FRAME
    Lovely bike! Beautiful colour. Gazelle really has had some very pretty paint throughout the years. I suspect that it is was supplied by Sikkens another 'lowlands' entity ...

    Thanks for posting these lovely pictures.

    I have seen the occasional Zunow here in Sendai. Quite surprising, since Sendai is the rectum of the OECD planet for great old vintage machines.

    Forty years ago i must have been very miserable. Fortunately, I didn't notice.

    In total, I do not disagree with you. But, reality steps in between what we BF people may think, and what the general public perceives, as well as what they are willing to spend. Old is — well — old....

    You've been given lots of ideas and several points of view. I think all are valid. If it were mine, I'd focus on the frame. IMHO the paint is gone-gone-gone! Some new paint and — if you can replace...

    IMHO, like so many other rings in life, it's a choice that can be based both on logic as well as common sense. If the frame suits you, if it has the braze-ons you want, if it is exactly your size ...

    Thanks. Steel frame, unlike my aluminum 979. Interesting, especially the rear DO's, which may be the only Vitus thing about it?? The glimpse of the head badge looks like nothing I recall seeing on a...

    It is easy and natural to spend more money on a wheel-set than the frame may be worth — more money than most people think the frame deserves. (I think that wheel-sets are underrated and overlooked in...
