For Sale 1978 Gazelle Champion Mondial 60cm

twosheds

Retro Guru
Up for sale is my Gazelle Champion Mondial road bike. Pearlescent white over half chrome stays and forks. It rides very smoothly and quietly and handles well at speed. The wheelset is particularly nice.
I don't want to break it up again, I'd rather it went to a good home, I don't want to put it on eBay.
I'm 5'11" with 31" inside leg if it helps with size.

Here is a full specification and photos:

Reynolds 531 frame dates from approx. 1978, with Tange headset
I think it is an A frame, (it has eyelets for mudguards)
57cm top tube
60cm from BB to top of seat tube
Half chrome forks and chain stays with rear dropout adjusters
Pearlescent white with some scuffs and marks from use.
Wheelset - Mavic module E alloy rims laced to Pellisier large flange hubs with stainless spokes
Tyres - Continental Ultra Sport
Crankset - Shimano 105 (1056) 53-39
Freewheel - 6 speed (Not sure of make)
Shifters - Shimano 600 (6100)
Brakeset - Shimano 600 (6207)
Front derailleur - Shimano 600 (6100)
Rear derailleur - Shimano 600 GS long cage (6000 or 6100)
Bars/stem - SR road champion
Saddle - Selle Italia turbo
Seat post -SR Laprade? (No markings visible)

All works as it should.
Note: The rear derailleur is quite a rare item. Possibly a 1st Generation Shimano 600 from 1974/75 with a long pulley cage.
