1984 Gazelle CX bike in excellent condition…purchased in Netherlands where it was hanging in the rafters of a bike shop for years. Original paint, decals, etc. would say it’s an 8/10, some minor cosmetic chips likely related to shop wear … Set up as a true CX bike with 1 x 5 gearing and bar end shifter…have taken it on some 20+/- mile rides on road / gravel and ride quality is great. You will not find a vintage CX bike this clean.

Just tuned and it is ready to go for kickoff of CX season or as an all-around gravel bike, commuter, etc.
Color is beautiful red (Dutch Rood) and is the same color that the Amstel Bier Team raced on their Gazelles...hand made in Dieren, NL. The Dutchies know a thing or two about Cyclocross 😉.

- Seat Tube 59cm c-c / Top Tube 57cm c-c
- Reynolds 531 Tubing
- 1 x 5 Drivetrain
- Suntour Bar End Friction Shifter
- Suntour VX Cranks
- Suntour chainring / original chain guards on the inside and outside of chainring (very cool)
- Shimano 600 Rear Derailleur
- Shimano 105 Brake Levers
- Dia Compe Cantilevers with new Kool Stop Pads
- Shimano 105 hubs
- New cables and housing
- Mavic MA2 CX Clincher rims
- NOS Gumwall Kenda CX Tires
- Cinelli Stem / Bars
- Shiman0 600 Seatpost
- Selle Rolls Saddle
- MKS Pedals

First $750 obo takes it, as just moved back to Atlanta with less garage space and need to thin the herd, motivated but not desperate.
Ok I might be nitpicking here, but can someone explain to me how this bike is a 56cm?! The seller list the seat tube at 59cm (c-c), which could also mean this frame is like a 60.5cm (c-t). The seller also says the top tube is 57cm. So where does the 56cm come from? If anything, this bike should be listed as being a 59cm. And from the picture, it is definitely looks it too.

Good Luck!
