Gitane and Fiorelli Pricing
Picked up these two a few weeks ago, Gitane Tour De France Professional, and an unknown Fiorelli bike.
Gitane Frameset. I may end up throwing this one up here it seems the BF members appreciate the french frames more then the general public, maybe because they know what they are in for part wise. French frames aren't ones I am very familiar with value wise although this maybe one I end up building up. I think its Reynolds throughout the frame but it may be the main tubes Im pretty sure its a 1973 model.
From what I have read the Fiorelli doesn't seem like it was one of the more quality ones Fausto Coppi rode which were full NR but overall it seems to be a decent ride. The Fiorelli is built up with a mix of parts Nevar cottered cranks, Campy FD, first generation Dura Ace BD, Universal calipers, and Campy high Flange hubs. I figure its not a frame thats highly sought out for but the parts are fair, I will probably part it out, break down the wheels and repaint the frame down the road as another italian steel project. Either way I would love to hear if anyone had anymore info on it, there aren't many threads on them here.
Any comments on value and any other extra info would be greatly appreciated.
