Recently acquired Gazelle Champion Mondial A Frame - it's the winterised version of the race frameset with extra clearance for wider tyres and to take mudguards (the latter still to be added).

The build is a mixture of what I had spare in the shed so Superbe Pro chainset and rear mech, Suntour d/t shifters then a mix of Campag including modern skeleton brakes. All seems to work well and the leather bartape is surprisingly comfortable.

Nice one Ed 8)

Brown tape and saddle go well with this bike, a rare occurrence.
Your brake cables are the wrong way around though! :lol: :wink:
