1941 bicycle details?

Postby McCannJ » Sat Jan 12, 2013 7:05 pm

Hello,
I recently acquired a 1941 Gazelle from a client as a tip. I don't know too much about bicycles; however someone directed me to this forum in order to obtain some details. By details I mean anything that can be considered useful. The individual I received the bike from said it was used by the nazis during the war. He didnt say much else about its story. It is in fairly good condition with its original stickers and labels as well as a serial number. The tires are flat and a plastic cover on the back where's frame is cracked. There is also some rusting. Regards Jake McCann

Hi Jake

Welcome to BNA, if someone can help you out with info this is one of the best places for it. I would suggest posting up some pics of it (including closeups of labels, badges etc). If you are unsure how to do so, have a read of this thread

would be one rare bike in Australia so im thinking not, Army bikes didnt have decals as a rule (WW2) just paint, probably black in this case. Need photos :D
