Chrome handlebars and Atax stem 70mm (orig. Pivo 65)
Mafac S brakes (orig. Weinmann 730) with Weinmann levers
Huret Svelto derailleur and shifters
Cyclo 72 freewheel 14-15-16-17-18 (orig. Maillard)
Crankset 48-40 with Atom pedals (orig. Lyotard 5R)
24" chrome wheels with Atom hubs dated '74 and '75
Michelin and Wolber tires 600x28 A
Leather seat Idéale 27 junior (orig. plastic Gallet)
Mini front rack Spécialités TA and bottle cage Reg

Bravo, thanks for cleaning up the vintage Gitane. The seat pouch and front mini rack with touring bag are great touches.
