Two weeks ago I found a 1915 Gazelle, apart from the frontwheel and the spatborden, it is all original 1915.
It even has it’s original GREEN colour ! with a bleu and a yellow stripe, this is very rare because in those years (almost) all bicycles (and all other vehicles) were black !
It has been a beautiful and expensive bicycle (Gazelle No. 12) because it has fixed bearings in the crank-axel and backforks are completely build up with luggs.
The photo’s are the bicycle how I found it, I pumped up the tires (old pre-war-Gazelle-tires) and could cycle away with it, even the brakes are very good working !
The bicycle has the rare old type copper Gazelle-badge (with the gazelle-head on top), no Gazelle-inscription on the front of the frame, the old steering-lock systeme, old type gazelle frame, the lamp hook has a lion on it (?) and the frontgear is the GAZELLE-letter-type.
Maybe you like to show the photo’s of the bicycle to other Gazelle-lovers….
