It does say Gazelle on the BB shell doesn't it? Is that a leaping deer like logo?

Or a leaping Gazelle, here is the modernized version of the company's logo but still reminiscent...

Well the Super Record Kit is worth cleaning up if nothing else. The same kit would indicate one of Gazelle's top models either an AA or a AB. No guarantee though as people often would over upgrade bikes.

Restore? I would just do a detailed cleaning, including taking everything off the bike. Lube, grease and change the cables....
