Gitane's answer to the inexpensive entry level race bike market. It came shod with tubular tires,Simplex "prestige" derailleurs and a Maxy type alloy crankset.
Way back in 1984 I slammed broadside into a deer with it on a fast twisting descent. Until recently it was permanently mounted on my trainer.A few cans of rustoleum later it has been revived. Too much history to overlook along with those cool rear drop-outs.

Brake wing nuts

I just have to ask- what's with the wing-nuts holding the brakes on???
In all my many years of bike-life, I have never seen that before!

Wing Nuts

I had a bunch of metric wing nuts around so I attached the brakes with a few just for giggles.

Could be handy for some

Could be handy for some purpose, but a little scary too! Cheers, Duncan
