Mine is still a 'current project'
Looking good, like the matching brakes
That's a grail frame right there. I'd say 9spd campy and spooky canti brakes. Amazing find, much jel
I had this yellow one, which I sold about 4 years ago due to size. It was resprayed with incorrect decals and my build was far from perfect in retrospect. These 531's are rare and spught after, but a 753 is proper grail.
Thanks. I like your build there damskodonny. I was torn between a modern and retro drivetrain and went for the efficiency of modern in the end. The chain set just doesn’t do the frame justice though!
Brakes are trp cx8.4, have them on my other cx bike and like them a lot.
Loving all the Gazelles on here!
Thats cracking mate! Really really nice. Very jealous that you could get mini vs to work, the bosses were way to closely spaced on my 531 CM CX.
Flite would look great.
You could always get clamps for a bottle cage. They actually don't look too bad when paired with a nice metal cage.
@damskodonny and @robvb mind if I share these two to my @gazellechampionmondial insta?
Thanks mate, much appreciated :) Saw your CX build too and thought it was awesome, especially the green Gravelkings. Ta for the tip on the bottle cage clamps, will have a search.
And absolutely, go for it on the insta.
Cheers. I absolutely love riding it, its actually really capable.
I'm going to get some of the burgundy gravelkings slicks too. They'd look awesome in 35 front and rear.
I used dmr clamps and planet x cage. Cheap and cheerful.
Awesome, thanks mate. Will def give those a try as I'm carrying a bottle in my jersey pocket which is ok but not ideal. Gonna have to check out some bling Gravelking colours as well now!
Love mine too, it's my go-to bike at the mo, so much fun, handles really well and has even bagged a few KOMs on bridleway climbs on the South Downs where I ride :)
I'd be honoured. Great cross champi btw!
This catalogue pic from 1984 always makes me want a red one
I was just about to share the same image. There are quite a few catalogue shots with cross frames in workstands
That is such a good pic, thanks for sharing. White cable housing looking classy.
These are much fun to check out. Up until 1985 or something, the photography is pretty decent. After that, the 80s lazyness and lack of taste takes over. Some cool lopros in there tho
Tidy looking A frame in the classifieds.
This looks tiny, but an interesting Gazelle nontheless
That is fucking amazing!
I'm very impatiently waiting for a BLB package with a new 1 inch columbus threadless fork so I can get my tatty old AB back on the road.
Going to try the new zipp matte silver stuff on it.
That is rather filthy 👍
I'm sitting on my hands with all these cool gazelles on the market rn. This trapezi also caught my eye:
Gazelle R531 Racefiets
I&I should get this, Jah love!
Quite glad that's too big for me. If i bought another gazelle right now, I'd be a dead man
