    They look good and at a glance you might think they are filet brazed but they aren't... we had a lemon yellow Continental come in to the bike co-op and am sure the frame, fork, and crank weighed more than many of my complete bikes.

    If you were to come across a Super Sport or Superior you would have a really beautiful bike as these are hand built filet brazed frames which is something no other mass producer of bicycles has ever done.

    i saw a pretty worn out supersport frame and those really crappy astabula (i think thats what they're called...) cranks and other bad components, non working, for 100 bucks. deal or no deal?

    while very worn, fillet brazing is very cool looking...

    I also have a Gitane Tour de France (Professional), of seemingly the same vintage.

    Do you know what rims came on that bike? All that I can find identifying them is "700C MADE IN BELGIUM". Mine were laced to Phil Wood hubs, though I suspect that was not standard.

    My Takara. It's completely disassembled now and I'm thinking of making it a fixed gear porteur bike.

    Mavic Monthlery tubular rims and Normandy Luxe Competition hubs. Definitely all French, not Belgian. I have a set hanging in the garage. Campagnolo Nuovo Tipo hubs were optional. http://www.gitaneusa.com/images/cata...-Sheet-001.jpg

    My bike is pictured with Mavic MA rims and 501 hubs. It's a seven speed freewheel.

    Come to think of it, those are Mavic Monthlerys and Normandy Luxe Competitions on the white PA10.

    gave her a bath, polished the cranks and tossed on some semi-slick 45's...if fatties fit fine, why not take advantage?!
    ...then cruised on down to the park for a photo shoot.

    I paid $200 for a '73 Super Sport just to use the frameset in an ultra-wide gear range sport tourer, and think it was a fair price.

    Before (eBay seller's photo):



    Frameset after powder coating, decals, and wet clear coat. Weight of frame, fork, and headset = 9.34 pounds (straight gauge 4130 chromoly).



    Finished bike. Weight 26.36 pounds ready to ride (Campy triple crank)

    More mods to the Phillips... now running 21 speeds and with a little more brazing work to the frame...



    Just picked up a 1977 Raleigh Folder 3 speed... that will stay mostly stock.

    I like the R20 because of it's robust build and ride quality... the P20 performs like a Bike Friday NWT (touring bike) and the upright rides like a standard 3 speed Raleigh but is much quicker to spin up and much more agile.

    Makes for a great urban assault bike in either form although the drop barred 21 speed is much faster.
