I was referred to this forum from another forum no one seams to be able to identify the bike i just bought. All i know is that it seams to been stolen once in its life and it been fun to try to figure out what i have. Any and all information you know about the bike is helpful. Thanks

NOT a Gitane

The frame is well made but is definitely not a Gitane unless it's been drastically modified.

The fork looks like it's off of an early 1970's Raleigh Pro.

The brazed-on design on the head tube looks familiar like it's off of a custom Japanese frame.

The cracked paint on the top tube is usually the result of a front ender.
