I tried to I.D. it on my own but
I need some help.
Here is what is known.
Bike was purchased in Late 70's
Bike was painted (poorly) and previous owner didn't recall
the make of the bike.
Tange Champion No.2 chrome fork
rear chrome stays w/ red pinstripe marks where it meets the paint
NO serial #
A 73 and 60 stamped into the left side of the head tube- refers to geometry.
Brooks Professional Saddle
Suntour seat post
Shimano Dura Ace brakes
Suntour Cyclone derailleurs
700c Rigida Rims to unknown hubs
Suntour Stem and bars.
No serial # and no holes underneath the paint on headtube
made me think it might be a gitane.
Are the top of the seat stays , where the stays meet the top of the seat tube ,flat or does it make a v shape on a Gitane?
They are V shaped on this bike.
Pics are in a FLICKR
The decal on the seat tube is from the bike shop it was bought from back in the 70's
It has Dan the village pedaler/River Falls WI and an obsolete phone #
It also has Raleigh written on top but from what I have seen in my searching online
is that it does'nt match up with a Raleigh.
Your help would be much appreciated.
the bike will most likely get some new paint/ tires and cables
once I figure what kind of creature it is.
