Mitch & CRers,
Motobecane had Huret drop-outs on the following models at one time or another: Grand Touring; Grand Jubile; Grand Record; Jubile Sport;
If Gitane followed any similar pattern to Motobecane (and I don't know that they did!), Huret drop-outs would have appeared on their upper mid range models. As a reference, I have a 1985 Gitane Super Corsa, which is Mavic SSC equipped and is also full Vitus tubing including the drop-outs. Forget consistency however as these are French bicycles!!
