Jan’s Crescent 319 is the first Swedish OTS to grace the Gallery. Classic Rendezvous also has some good info and examples of these great bikes, they even have some nice examples of tried and true Swedish Marketing.
This is a Swedish Crescent 319 made in 1979/80. It`s the first model with a complete component group made by Shimano Dura-ace. Before Shimano the top of the line Crescent were equiped with Campagnolo, and the Crescent 320 (the Pepita special in the U.S) had Campa for yet a string of years. This bike is built with Reynolds tubes and Nervex lugs (?). I`m still run my bike in amateur races why I shifted the stem to make my position more comfortable. At 45 you don’t need to bend to much..?
