Hi forum,
It's been a while, but I've got me a new project here: 1974 Gitane Interclub (I guess - it has the same Huret spiderweb dropouts as my '74 Super Olympic, but 'newer' decals); a bit on the h ...

Yep, while nothing like my Super Olympic, I was still surprised what a good ride this is. Also, those knobbies wouldn't look right on any of my other bikes (and wouldn't even fit on most anyway), whi ...

With road- and sewerworks all over the neighbourhood I didn't want to commute on my nice roadbikes anymore, so this gaspipe freebie came in handy. Seeing I used components from eight other bikes, it ...

Chas,

having just discovered that someone simply shimmed a standard stem to fit the 22.0 size headset, I think it's safe to say you're more than probably right on the BB having been 'adapted' to E ...

Chas, thanks again for all the info. As to the fixed-cup matter : no markings on the surface at all and yes, I was going to stick to that same adage as well - for the time being. Looks like it will ...

Took off the cranks - no markings at all on that fixed cup; I don't have the necessary tools to remove the cups, but they look absolutely pristine on both sides (as do the bb-shells) - no exterior si ...

Just noticed this small detail : the adjustable cup clearly reads 'Sakae 1.37 x 24 made in Japan' - am I dreaming or does that mean somebody at one point adapted the BB to english thread???

Wow. That really is a great deal for that bike. I have seen them use that decal scheme on the old team bikes for "Frigecreme", (sp?), the team that Joop Zoetemelk rode for in the early 1970' ...

So I got it for 150 euros in the end - so far so good! Bit of a disappointment : brakes & levers are NOT Campagnolo Nuovo Record, like most of the other components, but Dura-Ace; nice enough dril ...
