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 sports bicycles with a very solid reputation amongst commuters and weekend tourers. This particular Gitane Eclair Anglais is exactly such a ladies vintage bicycle with a very elegant classic geometry.
It gets a typical 1980s touch through its bi-coloured fluo paintjob and the white components.
Fitted with two mudguards and a variety of gears, this Gitane is a reliable companion for your daily rides without renouncing an undeniable vintage style.
Completely checked in our workshop, this vintage ladies bike is ready not only for the urban jungle but could also be used in Eroica events.
