Hi, I am getting ready to mod out a vintage bicycle, but am confused on what exactly I have.
The decals on the bike tells me that it is a Gitane 1971 tour de France bike. The simplex derailleur and parts tells me that it is most likely TDF. However, I have not seen the fork crown in the 1971 models anywhere. Is this a super corsa?
I looked up this particular fork crown and found bikes called Ralein Gran sport, which looks exactly like this. What kind of frankenstein am I dealing with here?
Here are the pics:
Thanks in advance.
