The top tube on my early 80s Gitane Sprint broke clean through yesterday. I loved this bike(it was originally my fathers) but I'm not sure if there's much that can be done to save it.

Nice progress.

I've used three of the 118mm VO French thread bb's on my early 70's PX10, mid-70's Gitane Olympic and 82 or 83 Vitus 979. I've had really good success with these bb's and would use ...

Do you have close ups of the other lugs on the bike? Does it appear to be a Reynolds frame but cro-mo fork?

Classic bikes can be a lot of fun but the challenges on some of these can also be frustr ...

I agree - activity in the forum is a positive. I too have checked weekly but most of the activity seems to be with the Facebook group..

Nice. Either one of my 3 Gitanes is what I grab first. I prefer my 84 Sprint first.

I haven't really used the Huret derailleurs - how do they shift? I normally source Simplex for my bikes of that era.
