    Old 70's Folders

    Hey all, first post here, be nice

    I've just picked up 1970's Gitane Folding bike... I've been scouring the web to find any info I can, but there's not much. I think the model is a Concorde or a Concorde GT...

    I'd love to find out more about it, anyone own one or have info/stories to share??

    Bye!

    Pics are required.

    Hiya... interesting frame.
    Does this bike have larger than 20" wheels?
    Looks like the wheels are larger.

    Interesting, not sure about that stem mounted shifter though.

    Those look like 24" wheels to me but it's hard to judge scale in that pic.

    Can't wait to see how it's held up over the years.

    The wheels are actually 22inch, pretty standard I found out for french folders of the time.
