na3s,
Well, that makes two of us. I always liked this Professionnel as it was a great bike, not priced as a high end velo; about $889.00, as I recall. I should have gotten one in my size ( 58 cm.) w ...

You will probably realize by now that you are extremely welcome here. Personally, I was very glad to make your acquaintance. By the way, as other members already pointed out, the RMO tt bikes we ...

This model should be the 1990 Team Replica, I believe. It was not sold in the U.S. (if it makes that much of a difference)! However, the team that rode it was not RMO, but the Belgian team Histor-Sigm ...

Thanks, Chas! This one is my size, as well! Personally, I don't know if I would want to mess with replacing components, however. The standard Inter, as we all know, came standard with a Victory grou ...

This frame looks to be, essentially, identical to that of my '87 Inter. The rear brake cable, as for this example, entered and exited on the top front and rear of the top tube. The sticker on my ex ...

Kudos! This velo should be a real beaut when completed. If it were mine, it would probably fall into the category of; "too nice to ride."

Hi Maxime,
On the question; To correct myself, the group should be called Croce d' Aune Delta. C-Record Delta was Campagnolo's top of the line group; Croce d' Aune Delta was positioned just below t ...

Bon Jour Maxime,
Your bike is, indeed, an '89 Replica 11. Mine is, essentially, the same. It was described way back in the 1990's as a "Gitane 653" on this website; purchased in 1990 as a ...

Bobdini,
I think that you have it narrowed down as much as I could. That 1990 catalogue is a French domestic one. The Team Replica for that year may have been sold elsewhere, but not in the U.S., t ...

This is sensational news. However, since I'm looking for a Gitane road frame, perhaps such is in the cards if this frame garners a good response. I am also upset at the deletion of the Gitane name o ...

Yo Stephan,
Many thanks for this information and photos. Yes, this looks like a pre-production model. But, we sure have some differentiations, such as the thinner top tube, straighter (even appearing ...

Uncle C.,
What I, also, should have mentioned is that I would have had a great deal of trouble choosing between these two, if both had come my way. I would guess that B.H., etc. would have appreciate ...

From my perspective, this is a step in solving the mystery relating to the lack of information on Gitane for this period. I received a "fact sheet" only, for the "1991 Program", an ...
