You could be the proud owner of this vintage Crescent Varldsmastarcyklen "World Champion Cycle" road bicycle. It appears to be from the late 70's or possibly early 80's based on the components currently on the bicycle. From the early 1960's on Crescent and Monark were actually the same bike company but with different colors, decals, and head badges. They were THE dominant brands in Swedish racing, and also sold a lot in Norway and Finland. In the late 70's the company marketed Crescent as the top end quality bike while Monark became a more entry level brand and was out of racing .
The brakes and friction shifters work well. The frame is in overall good condition, but has a few paint chips from its years of use. It still has its traditional wrap around head badge.
This bike is being sold as is, please see photographs for details.
We don't know a lot about this bike. Budget Bicycle Center in Madison, WI has one listed for $2900.
