Hand engraved serial number starting with 63 68. Blue bike with Hinault written in multiple spots. Seems most parts on it are Italian and French. Also has a sticker that says Colorado.

Looks like an aftermarket engraving.

Did Hinault ever ride for Gitane? The color makes me think of them.

it looks like with a good deal of elbow grease and some TLC it will be a great rider. What are the parts? Did you try looking in the Classic Rendezvous listings? It’s probably a good machine the question is who was the contract builder

I agree I think numbers are likely someone’s way to identify it.

Hinault rode for and was the star of the Renault-Gitane pro cycling team (1976 to 1985).

Agree that the homemade-looking number under the bottom bracket was a previous owner's addition. You should look in all the various locations where a serial number might be found on the frame, including under the plastic cable guide next to the hand-engraved numbers.
