First an introduction of sorts. This bike was donated to our all-volunteer charity. For the past four years we have given over 2500 (yes, 2500) refurbished bikes each year to the needy in the Rochester, NY area. We sell items like this to help to pay our expenses, so I'd like opinions about the identity and value of this track bike. It was identified to us as a 1970 Gitane. We don't have any track bike or Gitane experts to consult and I am fortunate enough to have found this forum.
Campy hubs.
Stronglight skip-tooth crank.
Nice lug work.
Profile saddle.
Mavic rims?

Thanks for your help,

Fred

Greetings and welcome to the Forum.

If it's a Gitane track bike, it's from the early to mid 60's. Nervex lugs were used back then.

The seat post size is an indicator of the tubing quality.

The Campy front hub is a Strada model (road hub) that someone put a Pista (track) axle in.

Take a link out of the chain.
