Frenchapanese Creation

I'm thinning my heard by re-purposing one of my bikes to sell to a friend of mine who wants to get into riding. I'm building it out of parts I have laying around that I don't really have a use for (mostly...).

It's an '85 Gitane Performance which was third from the top for that year.

- Columbus Aelle
- mostly 8 speed shimano 600 tricolor
- I suppose I'm letting him have the Mavic SSC headset because I don't have anything else to put on it at the moment
- shimano rsx brakes
- no name aero rims with dura ace hubs
- large 29t 8 speed rear freewheel that I hope will work with the 600 rear short cage mech.

you'll have to excuse the non vintage mtb stem, but it was the only thing I had to get the reach right for him and that fit those nashbar bars. I just need some down tube cable stops and I'll be running cables and calling it a day. I'll post some more pics here when it's done.








hope he likes it
