|Can someone help identify this bike? It is a Gitane I bought some years back. It appeared to be all original, apart from the Brooks saddle, the Brooks bar tape I added for comfort and Spidel pedals . At least I did not find it in the catalogues. The 1983 Gran Tour comes close but it has a Vitus 788 frame and a number of other differences like cantilever brakes.
Bar CTR Guid and Stem (?)
Crank Stronglight 99 triple (?)
Pedals Spidel (changed)
Derailleur front and rear Simplex SLJ
Brakes MAFAC Competition
Frame Reynolds SMS all tubes and fork
