Dave,

The Gitane USA website probably has the best info on Gitanes including vintage catalogs.

http://www.gitaneusa.com/index.asp

Here's a link to the spec sheet from the 1970-74 Gitane US catalog.

Scroll down to the bottom of this thread in the Gitane USA Forum for a detailed list of late 60s to 1974 Gitane Tour de France real specs.

Reproduction foil decals are available on eBay from Cyclomondo. We worked with Greg to help him produce these decals which are very close to the originals.

I worked at 2 Gitane dealers in the 1970s and I own 3 late 60s, early 70s Gitane TdFs.
