Thnx for sharing, really nice set up with the randonneur type bags

My latest find, a pretty rare 1980 Serier build PEKA (Peperkamp) from Amsterdam. it was modernised but the previous owner had kept the 2nd gen Dura Ace group, so I rebuild it with the original components.





Serier build with the horizontal saddle clamping lots ( supposed to minimise the frame stress when clamping apparently)




Original Peperkamp stickered rims on Dura Ace hubs






And of course nice open fork ends

Let me contribute to this topic as well, with a nice Gazelle Champion Mondial from 2017 as a tribute to Gazelle 125 years. Mine is built with a Shimano Ultegra 6800 groupset and the frame is the Reynolds 853.


And a very nice Gazelle Team from 1995 that has a full Shimano Dura Ace 7400/7410 groupset.


And finally a project on the go, a Gazelle Special from 1996. It is currently being repainted and rechromed after the whole seat tube had to be replaced because of a rotten stuck seatpost. This frame will also get a Dura Ace 7400/7410 groupset. It has a lot of history to it, that is why some money is spent on making her look as new.

Nice! Weren't those made by Herman Braun?

I actually have no idea where the frame has been built. I know somewhere in Europe, but this question was asked the day all the CM125 customers were invited to the Gazelle factory in Dieren to collect their framesets. But no one had a clear answer to this.

The frames were built by Colossi in Shenzhen, China. A company started and owned by Dutchman Jan Kole.

Thanks. BTW, I've found the source on which my previous post was based, and it seems that my memory was a little fuzzy. Gazelle did ask Braun for a proposal to build them, but that did not lead to an agreement, so Gazelle went elsewhere. Nice to know where "elsewhere" is.

Batavus criterium 1986

My mid-80's Criterium; "set-up" for road/cross riding (means I put on bigger tires, 30mm, that's all!). Usually with QR rear fender for the wet days. Front derailleur/shift lever removed; manual shifting if using small ring; rare for Florida. Bike is essentially original from new, except brakes and crank set, saddle.

Please tell us about Bontekoe. I plead guilty to not knowing very much.

While we're on the subject: this is one of my latest finds, a 1968 Gazelle 'Race', from the days before they were called Champion Mondial (Harm Ottenbros had yet to become World Champion). Repainted and rebranded as a Bontekoe.

Are you sure this a Gazelle Race? Doesn't look like it, to me that is. Unless it's a kid (youth) racer.

I know, it's a pretty special bike. I started a thread about it here: https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-v...drv-cycle.html. I'm guessing it's from 1990 since it has serial number DV2 (Dirk Visbroek 2).

No, I am not. I am confident that it's a 1968 Gazelle, however. Check out this thread for more info on this bike.
