Well the sun came out today so I decided to take the Gazelle out for its first proper ride 8)

73.8 miles later and I'm a happy chappy :lol: I only intended to do about 25-30 miles but got a bit carried away as I was enjoying myself too much :lol:

Went out with no pump or spare tub and no bottle cage let alone water bottle :lol: but had my mobile and £20 for munchies :D

Had more old roadies stop me to chat about the bike than any other I've ridden and when I stopped at a pub an old bloke had his photo taken with it :lol:

It did look very nice in the sunshine though 8)

Looks like an AB to me. A great frame. You sound like you do like yours. Enjoy :)

What a beauty!
I think I will get mine out of the loft (where it lives during the winter months) and give the old girl a spin at the weekend..
You have inspired me! :D
