About this bike

I owned a lot of Gazelle Champion Mondial's in my life. But this was my first AA special and it is a truly special one. According to the frame number, which is 3271817, this one can be dated back to 1981. The strange thing here is that the AA special was introduced in 1982. So this could be (if I'm right) one of the first AA specials ever produced. 

 I bought the bike from a guy in Dieren, the same place where the Gazelle factory was and still is. He told me that he bought the bike in 2004 from a former employee from the gazelle factory.  I haven't changed much on this bike. Everything is still original, even the brake rubbers, although they have some cracks. The cables and the handlebar tape is knew. The rest is just like how it was in 1981.

The bike is in a good, used condition. It has some patina here and there, but nothing really disturbing. The chrome is still in a good condition. The frame itself is made out of reynolds 531C tubes, and has a lot of pantographes. Furthermore does it have internal cable routing and an Italian Roto bracket. The bike is equipped with the best Campagnolo had to offer in those days. A complete Campagnolo Super Record group. A true masterpiece for a Gazelle collector!
