My neighbor loves to hit estate sales and auctions and I spotted this in his pickup the other week. Nice little Gitane folder in good shape for its age and very little used from the looks of it. He now has it on CL and the price has dropped from $200 to $150. I suggested a hundred bucks when I saw it but he's aiming high.

I had once a folder similar to that and it had been sold by Sears. Actually I may have to look and see if it is still here. Roger

Any help is appreciated. The weak point of this design is the lack of height adjustment of handlebars. I plan to put two quill stems and ape hangers on it.

You can raise and adjust the bars by loosening the clamps on the bar where it goes into the fork. It allows you to both turn and raise them. They look like seat post clamps. Roger

The front is factory, and the rear is a Rhino Light rim. I have no issues, as you mentioned, with the igh. I did have a problem with my Speed P8 in first gear. The chain rubbed the tire, so I had to use narrower tires.
