Yesterday, still another bike "fell from the sky" into my humble stable. A dump find, kindly bestowed by a cycling friend.

At first glance, it looked like a Gitane sticker on the head tube, even though he told me it was a St Etienne before bringing it by. I was curious about the St. Etienne brand itself, and also any connection to Gitane.

The bike looks like 531 main tubes, simplex drop outs and criterium derailleurs, mafac, belleri, and nervar star components. It had only the rear tubular rear wheel witha normandy luxe hub.

Any comments or info appreciated.
