I've been after a Gazelle 753 for ages, just bought this really nice original bike, with early Campag gear, Cinelli Unicantor, 1R stem and double crest bars, but it's just too small :cry:

I love the original patina of this bike, as I wanted it to ride, not just look at. Not sure what to do???????

Pretty sure you can tidy up your chippings & do some weeding along with fixing the rotten wooden door frame :)

Sell it, there is no point if you cannot ride it...and us shorties are sick of seeing 59cm frames only for sale!

It's a 55cm, I really need a 57 to be comfortable, though just couldn't resist it and have tried longer stems etc and it's just not right :(
