Zombie thread alert! Beautiful bike. My question is, did Gitane ever supply any TDFs this color? My "mystery bike" that Chas id'd as a 73-74 has vestiges of this color inside the steerer tube......

I haven't checked in on the site for quite some time, but wanted to let you know I'm still enjoying the heck out of this bike. I cleaned up the threads on the rear derailleur hanger and mounted a Campagnolo rear derailleur in place of the Shimano it came to me with. Also sourced a set of Campy clincher wheels to finish it out. Hoping this will be my ride if I can make it to the upcoming L'Eroica this year!

In 1972-73 Gitane offered most of their models in this candy apple gold color. Not many but a few.

So yes TdFs came in gold
