Everett K, referred by Hugh, is looking for some help ID’ing this bike. I say Gazelle.
Hello, Hugh from Hugh’s Bicycle Blog in Michigan suggested I email Cameron at OTSG with some pictures of one of my bikes. This was passed down to me from my father who bought the frame while stationed in the Netherlands in the early 70s. He then built it up with whatever components he was able to obtain. I’ve been trying to identify the frame but haven’t been able to get a conclusive ID yet. Someone suggested it was a Raleigh International, but there seems to be a missing cross brace on the seat stays. When my dad bought the frame, he rattle-canned it gold. Apparently it was originally a white or pearl white and had a graphic that said “Mondial Campagnolo” along the top tube, which seems to indicate a Gazelle, but the geometry doesn’t match up with any frame I’ve seen. I’ve attached a few photos. If you can help me identify the frame, I’d be very grateful. Thank you,
