Here is my new winter bike whilst I build up next seasons bike.

Jubilee 100 years with full Dura-Ace 7400. I have just put on my Hope wheelset and it rides like a dream. Im am thinking about putting my Sram Force groupset on which could complement it really well.

Jesus the paintwork looks like the maker went through his shed searching out his half empty spray cans to complete it :D

As I will be using the gazelle alot over the winter I would prefer the hope wheelset. I still have got the original dura-ace wheelset as spares.

I am looking to change the stem to dura-ace 7400 110mm. The current stem is an ITM 130mm ernesto colnago panto.

I have changed the seat to my fizik nirone but got the rolls as an spare aswell. I was abit disappointed when I saw it had a AX600 post so am looking for a nice dura-ace to replace that.

Once I have I finished my other build I will restore it all back to full dura-ace

Yes I understand its not gazelle best paint scheme, but I quite like it. It takes a while but it does grow on you.

Very nice. I have had one too. I think it was 077 or 177. Someone on here owns it now (and many more nice Gazelles).

The paintscheme is distinctive and with the graphics I consider it typical early 90s. Also the TVM team bikes had a paintscheme with a seperate color for each tube.
