I finished building up the 1981, reynolds 753 Gazelle team bike and took it out for a spin. As I expected, it's quick and responsive. I cobbled together some period incorrect components (dont worry, Randy will help guide me to the right ones !) and the ride and feel makes me think it's a keeper ! Thanks to everyone who have helped me with details on the build, and to Freek for beginning the journey with the pretty frame.
In case you're in the area Marc, come out Sunday to Chuck's Rose Bowl ride and take it for a spin !
Those of yu in the 50 states... have a great 4th !
