Nice Bertin in great shape.
I think that it's a C34 amateur racing model rather than a C132 which were their Cyclotouriste bikes. The C132 bikes had longer wheelbases and rear chain stays for carrying panniers.
Here's my 1979 C132:
Welcome, nice bike; and I like the stand also
Guys, thank you for your kind words.
Verktyg, thank you for identifying the Bertin. She is indeed in plenty good shape as I had only had her on the road for 3 years before I put her in storeage.

Bertin stopped producing bikes in the early 90s and concentrated on distributing parts, components and accessories. In 2000 Shimano bought out Bertin and changed the name to Shimano France or something like that.
My 1975 C34 looked like this C37, same colors and so on.
