But I'm not so sure. How can you be so positive? front end tilted away with front tire turned back and a crappy camera with barrel distortion
camera shake=blur and flash means you could have 1/2 sharp outline and 1/2 blurry outline=headtube is beefier which=more defined and fork blades thinner=harder to defne
You could be merging the opposite fork blade and the nearest fork end and comparing with a solid looking block of headtube but one where the most distinct edge is on the outside front edge

I think it's close enough to have to see in person


although that handlebar setup could explain why that fork is bent
but then
with handlebars like that I can't imagine anyone doing anything on the bike ..period
let alone crashing into curbs and cars



I've enhanced. Looks close enough
If I were interested I'd look at it
I'm sure you've been around more than I have
But I would have to see for myself
I waste gas when you don't perhaps

Got it! Basically just for that BB cluster. Much better condition then mentioned in 2009 thread (no rust, a few scratches on decals). Saddle is not original (PM if you want it), and no suicide brakes (bummer...). Generator works, tires are shot. Otherwise in very good condition (excellent for 40 years old bike (virgin? )), a little too small for me. 30lbs.

Can't tell but I think this is the same bike talked about on this forum back in 2009: https://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...itane-Traveler

Here's the catalog listing of the bike, though it is in French: https://www.gitaneusa.com/images/cata...FR_1973_10.jpg

Congrats! So how does the collapsible mechanism work, does the frame separate into two pieces?

I agree despite the Chorus cranks, C-Rec, 600 Stem $900 is too much for a '87ish Formula frame with that hot mess of components. 7spd FW with Ergos?

No, it just packs compactly like this https://www.velo-pages.com/main.php?g2_itemId=14253
Sadly, the cool blue Gitane bike bag was lost somewhere between owners. Here how it looks: https://bikeville.blogspot.com/2012/0...-with-bag.html

Yeah, it's in my size range. I've inquired if he might sell as frame/fork only. We'll see. I don't need it and have been saving $ for something else, but sometimes it's just so hard to resist. Must stop browsing CL...

For those who, like me, have a soft spot in their heart for old Peugeots. Looks like a beautiful machine.

Congrats!!! I would have bought it too if I lived near there; it's just so unusual looking, and that sort of thing appeals to me, which is why I have the cars I have. I hope you keep it and if it needs any restoring to put into original factory condition you do it right. I think a bike like that is worth keeping.

Looks like a real mix. Yes the cranks are either Vic or Tri but the front brake, and likely the rear look like 600EX and the RD doesn't look CampIish either. The fork is a Geurciotti so I wonder if the frame is a Lemond or one of the other 10Spd frames.

If it was near me I would certainly give it a look.

Wasn't someone looking for a small bike for their kid? https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/bik/3652287059.html

MINT Binachi Road Bike - Tange Double Butted Cr-Mo - $300 (Wauwatosa)

This is a LIKE NEW Bianchi 700 rear wheel / 24" frt wheel , short frame. I really dont think it was ever ridin but really dont know. The bike needs nothing . This would be for someone 5' in height - give or take.

Just selling off some of my personal collection of bikes. Thanks JOHN 414-704-8694

Judging from this pic it hasn't seen much use
