Hi All,

I posted about this bike a while back and at the time provided these detail photos: http://www.fischer-wade.com/bike/eddygo.htm

I received an email from a list member at that time asking that I notify him if I ever sold the bike. I apologise for losing that message.

I'm making room in my collection for this Gazelle Cross Trophy cyclocross bike. The seller thought it was from the 70's, but I'm leaning more toward the early 80's. It's made of Reynolds 531, has long Campy dropouts, braze-on cable guides on the top tube and underneath the BB, and cable stops on the head tube. I think it just squeaks in under the 1983 rule if the knobbies and saddle don't DQ it.
