Steel road bike. Particular stays. ID?

Hello. Can anyone ID this frame?

The seller says that it has been painted over and is unidentifiable. I think though, with these stays, that it should be doable for a trained eye.

Wheels are 700c.

Thanks in advance.

Link to sale.

Thanks!

That G head badge looks like Guerciotti.

I think you have found a very low production vintage TT bike, probably from the late 80's or early 90's. Native built as a TT frame.

It probably has a sloping top tube (high in the rear). 700c wheels front and rear.

The low seatstays were designed to be "aero".

It looks like it would be a very cool bike.

Is that an auction at 60 Euros? TT and Funny Bikes have an odd market niche. Often not as high valued as one might expect due to their unique character, but I'd certainly put that bike at above 60Euros. Is that some kind of "buy it now" for 175 Euros... probably still reasonable.

I was thinking Gitane. The Guerciotti G would have a star around it.

Googling "Gitane TT Funny Bike", one comes up with these links:

Lo pro cycling club: November 2011
gitaneusa.com :: View topic - New member, 1995 Gitane TT bike





In fact, the black headbadge, and white stays are likely original.

@pressed001

If you choose not to purchase the bike, I'd be interested if you could "facilitate".

100 to 150 Euros (plus or minus) for the bike, plus 100 Euros shipping???

Hey gents,
Sorry, I missed the bidding. Would have been glad to assist with the purchase. It sold for 60 bucks. Great looking bike in the photos above.

Thanks
