Today I got my Zieleman
It is gloss black with silver panels. It is one with 'KZ' engraved in the seatstays.
Condition is very good! It came with an odd mix of parts:
1st gen DA cranks silver/black
1st gen DA brakes
Campa aero levers
600 arabesque mechs
600 arab. headset
Cinelli 'Zieleman' pantagraphed stem, black
Turbo Hinault seat, white
I am planning taking it entirely apart and build it up again. It could very well be the parts of the for me waaaaay to tall RIH will be used (Roval, Weinmann Delta Pro, Super Record...)
Another option is a mix of C Record with SR or a mix of DA EX/AX. The later is in 1st instance not really the prefered option as all my bikes are DA already (Koga, Panasonic - both Japanese bikes, Japan all the way!)
Anyway, like always the build will be typical Dutch pragmatic. I will solely use parts laying around. If I had to hunt for every single part this hobby would be unfundable.
There is more news: A 2nd, a cherry red one, is making its way to me now. I am very excited (but a bit feared I'll have to park it in the elements due to I ran out of room
) Tomorrow I am within 10km of a Joco that appears to be really nice. I saw other famous true collectors showed interest already, so I think I'll leave that one. Enough for now, even if it may an almost once in a livetime oportunity sort of.
Of course there will be full coverage on the projects overhere at Retrobike
