1970s 54cm Gitane track bike

We’re not impressed by the cottered crankset and the gearing is super high, but otherwise, very cool.


1970s 54cm gitane track bike – $300 (LIC)

I am selling an almost complete lugged steel Gitane track bike. It needs pedals, a chain, and tubular tires. This bike is very French, very old school, very tight, and very light. Parts list below:

Solida cottered crankset
Exceltoo front hub
Normandy rear hub
Mavic tubular rims
52×16 gearing
Unsure of the brand of the bars and stem.
SR seat post
Kashimax super pro saddle
Unsure of the headset and bottom bracket, but I just re-greased both and they are very smooth. They are both French threaded.
