Subject: [CR]French frame with split seat tube?

Does anyone know of a French made frame that had a seat tube that was split to allow for a short wheel base. In other words the seat tube split and went around the wheel. The frame may have been produced in the 80s so if it is out of the CR time line please respond off list.
