    Thank you Craigslist.. 88 Gitane Victoire

    So I've been searching for something a bit retro, but also cheap. I needed something I can go cruise on slow family rides. I had been looking at restore-able frames that just needed a little elbow grease and hang some cheap parts on it but wasn't having much success.

    Lucky for me, I found this deal. It's not as sweet as the nice TdF models of the Vintage, but still an amazing score at $85! The guy selling it had no clue about bikes, quote: "these screws here are for your drink holders" I guess it was his father-in-law's who blew out his knee and let this sit in a basement for 20 years..The Wolber tires are original and still have the "hairs" on them. I'm guessing there's < 10 miles on this thing.

    Great find! Love the world champion-esc toe clip straps. Anyone seen those for sale anywhere?

    Nice.

    There may not be 10 miles of anything on that bike but brake cable.

    Just pulling your lag. Nice bike.
