the original
Gazelle Champion Mondial

Welcome to my Gazelle Champion Mondial pages.

This site aims to provide information about vintage steel Gazelle racing bicycles, particularly the Champion Mondial models from the 1970's and 1980's.

I started with a number of my own scanned catalogs from the 1980's and 1990's but by now several people have contributed additional information such as older scans and an overview of frame numbers through the years.

November 2017: Thanks to the Velorama bicycle museum in Nijmegen I was able to add more than 25 documents to the site: 5 early brochures, 19 additional pricing leaflets and 3 clothing and parts brochures. Special thanks go to Cees van Wijk of the Velorama archive!

If you have questions or additional information that you would like to share, please drop me a line at

Lots of fun with these pages and your Gazelle bicycles!
