Subject: [CR]Andre Bertin track bike ??

I picked up an Andre Bertin track bike yesterday and I am curious about a couple of things.

It has Durifort decals on the forks and seattube. What year did these change to Vitus?

It has 96mm front fork spacing which I understand was common on older french bikes. When did the French change to 100mm?

The rear track ends measure out to about 115mm. Did they also have a different rear hub spacing? What time period?

The bike came with early 80's Campy HF pista hubs laced to gold NISI rims but I am thinking all Fraunch would be the way to go. Any suggestions on period french track goodies?

Durifort decals available...maybe....kinda????

Thanks so much
