The National model is pictured the 1982 British Gitane Catalogue in the catalog section of this site.

All of the bikes pictured in the catalogue have black handlebar tape. I was probably a glossy thick plastic type of tape.

The Gitane team bikes had the bars re-wrapped everyday during a race. They used both cloth tape - usually white or blue and Benotto cellophane tape in blue or yellow.

Thanks for the quick reply,I will probably use cloth tape as I don't think the plastic tape is still available.
