Description:

Gitane – a name which means 'Gypsy Lady' in French – is a brand which was synonymous with French bicycle racing from the 1960s through the mid-1980s, sponsoring riders such as Jacques Anquetil, Lucien Van Impe, Bernard Hinault (1975–1983), Laurent Fignon, and Greg LeMond

This particular Gitane road bike sports an original dark orange paintjob. Another highlight are the honeycomb dropouts which were a speciality of Gitane at the time. The bike is fitted with a functional mix of French parts from Huret, Mafac or Normandy. As was common for french racing bikes of that era, the fork and dropouts have eyelets for mudguards so the bike could easily be transformed into a more touring oriented build with the addition of some water protection.

Completely checked in our workshop, this vintage bike is ready not only for the urban jungle but could also be used in Eroica events.
