Gitane tourer - Calgary

At $185 this is a steal - Mafac cantis, Stronglight 99, Huret Duopar and/or Challenger, and looks like nobody rode it:

That is the third one to pop up within the last two weeks. WGB and thumpism posted them both here, both are now sold. Wish I’d grabbed the one near me….

How old are these things? I'd guess mid-'80s with that crank and the non-aero levers but I've never seen one before. I'd like to find one in my size.

1984 Gitane Gran Tour as seen in @WGB's post. Graphics on the downtube look to be a different year, so perhaps '85?
Catalog specs say butted Vitus 181, Simplex retrofriction bar-end shifters
Gitane catalog (1984)

Another "been sitting" bike. Seller listed it as a "Bicylce". Frame in good shape but perhaps more for parts??

​​​​​​https://madison.craigslist.org/bik/d...376674562.html

​​​​​​

Road Bicylce - $45
Lenton Sports Robinhood. 10 speed with shifters on the down tube. Very sturdy and well built bicycle. Made in England. Not exactly sure of the size. If I had to guess, I would say it's about a 56 or 58.

Take it as is for $150; it has been sitting in our attic for over a decade. It needs new tires. Not much else as far as I can see.

Possible full Reynolds mixte in Atlanta. Fork sticker might be legit, but I see no frame sticker. T/A crank and chrome socks and TUBULARS! Worth a call.

$30?? Ok, I'd pull the rims off the Ross and drop the frame off at the Co-op but the Traveler doesn't look to bad.

​​​​​​Two vintage road bikes, Schwann traveler and Ross gran tour 2, both need tires and going through, $30.00 for both, sold as is

Warning - Listed as both 54 and 58cm. Also, seller calls it a "Touting" bike

https://clarksville.craigslist.org/b...376932974.html

​​​​​​

bridgestone RB-T Touting Bicycle. 54cm - $175 (Clarksville)

Bridgestone RB-T touring bicycle. 54cm C-C. Vintage 93 bicycle and it is one of the classic Bridgestone products from that time frame. Cantilever brakes make loaded up touring easy. See photos for details. This bicycle is in great shape but will need new inner tubes. I will meet you within a reasonable distance from Clarksville.
