This was actually a trashpicked frame from the LBS I used to work at. I was told it was a Gitane but I'm not sure since it had a few paint jobs already. I had canti bosses brazed on by a buddy of mine and I also added cable bosses I had machined out of stainless where I work at. I painted it with DuPont Centera, Chevy truck white. Leather string chainstay protector from JoAnn Fabrics
