Thanks for posting the BikeCult page with the fork ends. http://bikecult.com/works/dropouts.html

Gitane mystery model bike:

The vert. dropouts labeled Gitane are the ones on my early 70s Gitane and I'd been looking for a web reference. Mine are stamped "Huret" and I wonder if anyone knows what Gitane model they appeared on, or any other bikes they were on.

Bought my Gitane NOS in the late 70s and it had all French stuff (Stronglight, Huret Jub., Mafac) and it seems like it didn't have a model name on the frame, but I might have forgotten.

The Gitane TdFs I've seen from that era had campagnolo components and had regular shaped horizontal ends, although my frame does have the same (chromed) fork crown you see on TdFs from then.
