Hello everyone, I'm happy to share my 1978 Flandria road bike. It's completely fitted with Campagnolo Nuovo Record and the bike is in a very nice shape. The original paint and components looks brand new. This bike as always been stored in very good conditions and hasn't seen much roads in his 35 year old life. And I'm gonna keep it like this, as i'm pretty sure its quite unique to have a legendary bike like this in this condition.

I had the opportunity to buy it a week ago for a reasonable price and didn't hesitate to buy it for a second. I'm the third owner now, both of the previous owners are bike mechanics so it's in excellent condition.

I still have another Flandria in restoration, but since it isn't as top end as this one and the frame is just to small for me, i'm gonna sell it once finished.

Looking forward to take this one for a small ride in spring, when the weather is better!

Frame: Ishiwata CrMo 022 Super Tubing, size 60

@Doubledee: The paint is great indeed, and just now I see the red looks a bit 'burned' on the pictures, probably because i resized them before uploading! I paid 530 GBP for the bike, which i think isn't a bad price? Either way, when i saw the bike that I loved in this shape and in exactly my size (60), i didn't hesitated. I'm a penny saving student and it's a lot of money, but I'll see it as an investment and eat my bread and water with pleasure while staring at my bike :).

And thanks about the info on the toeclip, might purchase them in the future. But since i'll have to save some money again, i'll have to do it with some new Cristophe toeclips from zefal and two custom made red leather straps :)

@matthew71: I'm not home at the moment so can't take a picture. The decal is some kind of a 'tribute' to Freddy's glorious years of '75 and 76'. The upper part in the Belgian colours refers to his victory in the championship of Belgium in '76. The 1976 in the rainbow colours refer to his world championship title in '76. The lower part and the 47,995 center part refer to his victory in Paris-Brussels in 1975, where he took the 'Ruban Jaune' (more info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruban_Jaune). The sticker says 47,995 km/h, but other sources say 46,110 km/h). I have no idea about which one is correct, anyone?

Wow, thats a fine bike. Looks to be in great condition? What work will you be doing to it? Doesn't look like it needs much.

Nice.

I saw a similar one in not so good condition for sale a few weeks ago. I was gutted that I could not afford it.

It looks in really good condition and oozes heritage.

Yes.. Nice to see a Nuovo Record equipped bike with no Super-ness about it, not so much as a chainring... just for a change!

I like your bike, but 100 people are too polite to mention that your headset is not Nuovo Record, and your front derailleur may be a Nuovo Gransport... I don't think that takes anything away from your bike, just saying... because you listed them as Nuovo Record.

Regarding your rims... they have no labels, but they may still bear the ghostly outline of the label(s), which could help to identify them. I think I can see this outline in the rear derailleur photo (twelfth pic.)... over to the rim expert.. (which ain't me!)
