Subject: [CR]Another Gitane question

Now that we're thinking about these, I recall a friend who worked for the Niagara Falls, NY Gitane dealer in 1970-72. He had the racing model with sewups and Campagnolo groupo, probably Gran Sport or Nuovo Record. What was the name of that almost top-of-the-line model, the 'Tour de France' perhaps? Any photos on the web, besides, of course, http://www.classicrendezvous.com/France/Gitane.htm
