Yes, those are Huret DO's, although other Huret do's were more conventional-looking. I have the one's lke yours on a mid-70's Gitane tourer.

The rear drops are a series of hexagonals with a fixed axle. They've got a single rack eyelet. Are these Huret dropouts? Unfortunately the fork has been replaced so no clues there. I can't find pix of these dropouts on the net.
