Gitane TDF

My son and I built this '84 Gitane TDF up for him during the last 3 weeks. We bought the frame from forum member ChromeMoly in December. The frame included the cranks/BB, seat/post and headset. Built up using Suntour 6 speed indexed shifting, Tektro brakes and levers (new), CInelli bars and stem, and a set of my wheels (Campy NR / Mavic MA 40). KMC x8.99 chain, Suntour Winner freewheel (Sunrace 6 speed will be going on it). Still need to tape the bars (red Cinelli cork).

Most handsome; thank you for sharing it.

"...a Roma lass in the land of Lincoln..."

Those Vitus ends are certainly distinctive.

Lug pattern is BOCAMA Professeionnelle Luxe with cutout nr. R 1.

That is a very good looking colour and a most tasteful build.

Tasteful indeed! Not in the least because of that stylish Ofmega crankset.

our non-fixie is quite the expert on Le Mistral since he just spent the solstice in Provence.

rough duty of course; but someone had to take care of it!
