Thought I'd take a picture in the snow but the background is a bit busy. Sorry.

That was at the bike shop when I went to pick it up The pics I took of it at home looked ridiculously bad.
Here is my 81 or 82 Gitane Tour de France. Frame is Reynolds 531 with Simplex dropouts. I am the third owner. The original owner raced it and initially had it built up with an assortment of French, Japanese and Italian parts. Stronglight crank, Campy BB and DT shifters, MKS pedals, Shimano Crane rear derailleur and 600 brakes, Mafac brake levers, 3TTT stem, Huret front derailleur, Maillard hubs with Mavic and Matrix rims.
I built it up with early 2000s (I think) 9 speed Campy Chorus. For now it's got the original crank and pedals until I get a 102mm French threaded BB for the Chorus crankset. Wheels are Chorus hubs to Mavic Open Pro Ceramic. Tires will be replaced soon. Brooks B17.
I am very pleased with it so far. I haven't done any long rides yet, (it's been below the 20s here in Iowa) but I hope to soon and it should be a very nice ride.
Sorry for the bad pictures. Comments welcome.

Put new bartape and cages on the bike today. Need to get out for a ride.
^ Awww man there it is again... Love your Z4... looking good!
Is that an Ultegra SL compact crank? You have DA 7800 adorning the rest of the bike right?
Am I the only one here with a low end ride?
My equally cheap new pedals.
Just picked it up today and it was a little muddy after it's maiden voyage this afternoon. But hell, I couldn't wait until spring when it is 40 degree's in Feb.

I am guessing that most regular BF posters tend to be a bit preoccupied/obsessed with cycles and cycling or we would not spend so much time on the site. Consequently, most of us own more or less high end rigs. As long as yours suits your needs and desires, it's perfect. Ride the wheels off it. It hit 59 degrees here in MD today and, out on my ride, I thought I felt just a touch of spring myself.
Forgot to mention what the bike was...
I just bought it today... a Fuji Newest 3.0 (2008 model) and some Shimano R540 pedals ..
first ride on the serotta today. put some fat tires on it for bad roads.
this is my friend's bike, who was riding with me.
