Grand Sport DeLuxe
The “Grand Sport DeLuxe” came in both men’s
and women’s models. An entry level bicycle, they were
used mainly for commuting and were extremely popular with
students due to their affordability. The name was used by
Gitane throughout the 1970's, but was not used in the 1980's
for reasons unknown.

with the faux chrome
Grand Sport DeLuxe’s can be identified by their stamped
dropouts and fake chrome fork crown. They also include kick
stand mounts, which did not come with Interclubs or any of
the other higher-end Gitane bicycles. Because of their popularity,
they are the most readily available of all Gitane models
today and can be found regular on internet auction sites.
