About

About this bike

Concorde was a Dutch brand. It was created in the 70's  by Veltec, a trading company in bicycles and bicycle accessories. A lot of people always thought that it was an Italian brand but thats not the case here, although some of their frames were indeed Italian designed ( by Pellizoti). The frames of higher quality often came from Italy, they were either produced by Billato or Ciocc. The paintwork of the frames was done in Belgium. 

From 1986 to 1992 they even Sponsored the well-known Concorde PDM team.  In 1987, Pedro Delgado was second in the Tour de France on a PDM Concorde bike. Also Steven Rooks and Gert-Jan Theunisse rode fore PDM-Concorde. 

This Concorde Mistral I am selling here is a very well  preserved example of the later produced Concorde's . I'm not sure or this one is Italian or belgium made but I guess Belgium. I've bought the bike from the first owner, she told me that she used it approximately 8 times before  hanging it to the ceiling for more then 25 years. As you can imagine the bike is in a gorgeous condition, it has some small flaws but it really is in a new condition. It has no wear on the rims and also the components are in a very, very good condition. 

Back in the days the Mistral wasn't the most expensive model in the Concorde hierarchy but more a reliable and affordable option in comparison with the more expensive models like the Aquila and the Prelude.  The bike is decked out with a reliable Shimano 600 groupset.  A reliable bike for everday use, and much better quality then the bikes that they offer these days :)
