The 73 is the angle, stamped in the lug, not the date stamp....

I just sent you a response via email, including a source for decals.

Recently purchased what I believed to be a 1976 Tour de France, for my next re-paint. It is chromed part way up the forks and has chromed honey comb vertical droup outs, which looks just like the 76's shown in the Gitane web site. What has me puzzeled is there is a tiny 73 stamped at the top of the head tube and at the top of the seat tube. Would this be the head tube and seat tube angles, or did the 73's have chrome drop outs, and is this in fact a 1973 Tour de france?

Any info and or any detailed photos of decals, and their position would be appreciated..
