Gitane Tour de France frame

I don't know anything about Gitane. Is this worth picking up for 25?

Thanks.

it's a Gitane but it ain't a TdF, at least not what we typically see with that model name...this looks like a low-ender, maybe worth $25 but not a lot more.

Thanks. The seller listed it as a genuine Gitane Tour de France and I didn't know if it was. The size is a bit big for me, I think I'll probably pass on this.

It's a Gran Sport. Entry level, but a good price at $25.

It says "Tour de France" on the seat tube, but that's in reference to the race; other races are also referenced on the seat tube.

The Tour de France model is designated by a sticker on the down tube.
