About

About this bike

During the the 80's and the 90's, Gazelle was conquering the Dutch market. The AA special was the top model - specifically designed for the more demanding pro cyclists. These bikes are rare, especially this one since it belonged to former Pro Thierry Detant.

Piet de Wit was an accomplished track rider and was twice world amateur champion. After his track career he became a meritorious professional cyclist and rode for the famous caballero outfit. After his pro career Piet started a bike shop in Wormer. Because of his excellent relations with the Gazelle factory in Dieren, he got it done that Gazelle foresaw the frames he ordered from top tube decals "model Piet de Wit." 

The bike  is in an flawless condition. Which is pretty rare since it belonged to former pro Thierry Detant, his name is engraphed in the stem. The bike has been build up with the best parts that were available back in the 80's. Campagnolo Super Record en Ofmega Competizione. Also pay attention to the rare drilled Super Record rear mech, something that you won't see every day. 

The frame itself  is made out of Reynolds 531C Tubing. Framenumber is 3309838 which would indicate 1987. The bike has been completely restored and has new cables and handlebar tape. It has no serious damages or any dents or cracks. A true masterpiece for every Gazelle collector!
