That is a seriously cool looking bike.

Never heard of a Veloce frame. Looks interesting.

Check the back of the fork crown and brake bridge. The brake bolts have been been blazed onto the frame, I've never seen that on a production frame and only on a few otherwise. Also the campy (styled) vertical dropouts, not a Peugeot thing.

Point taken on the brake bolts, I didn't notice that. Most unusual as you say. There were Pugs made with vertical dropouts but the brake set-up is against it.

Buuuut it's also 3cm too small for me and it's gone beyond the point that I'm gonna throw money at it to find out. Beyond the average components and Peugeot decals I see some Campy styled vertical dropouts (with some very clean brazing if you look closely in the 7th photo) and some braze on sidepulls! WHAT IIIIIIISSSSSS IT?

If someone on here ends up with it I would love to see some more detailed pics/identifiers.

It does look like a PX10 frame at first with the rear chrome stays but looking at the fork you can tell it's not as the crown does not have the raised chrome strips that the PX10's of the mid 70's had.

That's either a friday arvo frame or a re-spray. None of the decals are straight.

That frame smells early 70s*, but those decals seem early 90s ..... hmmm.

* over BB cable guides, brake bridge, wrap around seat stay tops.

Jim, is that brake bridge a Gazelle "signature"?

The 'butterfly brake bridge' does feature on a lot of Gazelles. If it didnt have that, it would almost definitely not be a Gazelle. There's not a huge resource for Gazelle history, but this one is the peak for now: http://jvs.webklik.nl/page/homepage

The other good one was Five Nine Climber, but that looks like its gone.

Well you did warn me... <leans down to pick up hat>


There's someone bidding there who has bought over 2000 things on ebay, but has put in 13 of the 19 bids with 8 days still to go! The ideal cards opponent but forget about a bargain on this one. These are the people that eBay loves.
