This mid 70s Gazelle Champion Mondial A-frame is looking for a new caring owner.
Full Reynolds 531 for frame and fork, Bocama lugs and Campagnolo dropouts. Leaping Gazelle engravings in fork crown, butterfly brake bridge and wrap around seatstay tops. Cream white colour with a green panel on the seattube, a green headtube and green pinstriping around headlugs, seatlug and fork crown. Metal headbadge.
Structurally sound with some patina. Good paint with the usual spots of pump fitting and frontbrake-downtube touche. Frame had a simple fender fitted, what did cause a paintdamage on both the seatstays about 2cm above the butterfly. On those spots touch up required with cream white enamel. Hardly a trace of rust. Only little surface rust right were the 2nd cableclamp fits. Fit clamp with grease.
Shimano 600 clamp on shifters, 3 toptube cableclamps, a nos Campagnolo pump umbrella (see last pic) and a Tange headset from a younger era. Personally I would replace it by a period correct silver unit.
The frame comes in 58 flavour (seattube, c-t). Toptube is 56cm long and headtube is 15cm heigh.
Looking for 120 GBP for this nice frame, including shipping.
Drop me a line if you want more and/or enlarged views.
Bargain Bargain Bargain!! Nice frame sir.
Wow, that's nice
it is a shame that i am too small. i want a road frame like this!
what wheels does it take?
Round i think.
Damn it, all my wheels are 27 inch dodecahedron ones... will they fit? Or will I need to shave off the edges?
Thats a really nice frame, I saw a courier on a very nice gazelle champ mondial today, which reminded me how much I wanted one. Shame that its too big for me.
Thank you all for the kind words.
The frame takes 700c wheels.
