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
Gitane not only produced high-end racing bikes but also reliable and stable city bicycles with a very solid reputation amongst commuters. This particular Gitane Steel Racing bike is a very sturdy model in classic Gitane team blue. The frame has been made from sturdy Reynolds 501 tubes with an internally routed rear braking cable. Fitted with a Shimano 600EX groupset and Normandy wheels, this Gitane is a reliable companion for your daily commuting without renouncing an undeniable classic style.
You could also use it to participate in a vintage cycling event like L'Eroica.
