    1984 Gitane Team Pro, yay or nay?

    So I just found a Team Pro for sale near me for $50, it's too small for me so I would have to flip it but would it be worth it?

    There is a sub-forum for this but, with the right photos, you could get $400 for it. At $50, you better be quick!

    Yeah I wasn't sure if this should go in the sub-forum or not, sorry.

    Just shot the seller an e-mail asking to meet and check it out.

    You can get a lot more than $400 for that bike if it's in good shape.

    Nice score!

    I'd bet that next time you won't ask, you'll just go get it & brag here later.

    She lived in an apartment complex and didn't have any room. From talking to her I could tell she used to be a pretty decent biker and knew that it was worth more and was happy to see it going to someone who appreciates it.

    Crap - I would absolutely love to find one of those for $50. I rode one in Oakland this year - unbelievable ride - and was offered a frameset at $400. How small is too small? I'd still try to ride it if I were you.

    It's a 54, I need a 58, I'm def gonna give it a run around the block but anything more than that isn't gonna work.

    Was the one you rode $400 for the frameset, or were they $400 new for a frameset?

    I'm not sure what I'm gonna do with it yet, would love to trade it for something in a 58 or an all mountain bike but I'll keep you in mind.

    The one I rode was just another bike lover's ride. With the components he had on it the bike was worth more than $400 especially because the paint was impeccable. I don't believe the bikes were sold as framesets. Check out the catalog at www.gitaneusa.com and join the forum - they'll give you a wealth of info. Several of the members there have Team Pro bikes and love them.

    Definitely a "yay!"

    That's the same model frame LeMond rode in the World Championships.
