Another addition to my Zieleman collection :)

A small one which has been repainted by Zieleman after a few years. The owner told me it was originally Ivory white with dark-red decals and he just wanted it outfitted in blue after a few years.

Nice detailled z's in the lugs and a special way of cablerouting where Zieleman made no holes in the topube for the innerbrake cable but a groove along the toptube where the outercable runs through.

Looks great! I can imagine the former owner had a colourful outfit as well in the early nineties :)

Were the cables already non aero?

You are right. It had an

You are right.

It had an 'upgrade' with shimano exage aero levers. I had those campy's still in the parts bin and when fitting them I chose the non aero route.

Nice vintage bike!


I had a red Zieleman back in the 70's- Reynolds 531 and all Campy Record. Mine was an earlier build and had no braze ons except bottle mounts and rear derailleur cable stop- all else was clamped on- top cable guides, and even the lower cable guides at the BB. But, it was beautifully built with cutout lugs and BB. I loved the bike, but sold it for a Guerciotti. Truth is, the Zieleman was a nicer riding and better built frame.

I believe in the 60's he build his bikes standard without any braze ons. Don't know exactly if and what braze ons were available.

In the mid 70's at least without braze ons was still the basic frame and Ko charged a little extra money for every extra braze on.

In the 80's as far as I can see he really started varying the way he build his frames. Every bike has it's own specific finish.

You are right that these bikes are known for the nice way they ride and handle. Very well build
