Gazelle Champion Mondial team Skala
Another nice bike for sale. This time an immaculate Gazelle Champion Mondial AA Special in the "Skala" team colours. Back in the days the AA special was the top model in the Gazelle hierarchy. In the 80's these belonged to the best bikes that money could buy in the Netherlands. Exactly these frames were used by a lot of pro teams during the 80's.
According to the frame number, which is 3281853, this one can be dated back to 1984. I bought the bike from the original first owner. The bike is still in an exceptionally good condition, as you can see in the pictures. It has almost no visible damages, except some very small paint chips here and there..
This gazelle Champion Mondial is a very well preserved example of the early 80's Champion Mondials.The frame itself is made out of the Legendary Reynolds 531C tubing. Furthermore the bike is equiped with one of the most reliable groupsets that Campagnolo had to offer in those days: a complete Campagnolo Nuovo Record groupset. The paintjob on this bike is still in a very good condition and was (and still is) one of the most sought after Gazelle color schemes. The chance that you will find another one in this size and condition is almost none..
