My 1971 Gitane Super Corsa remains 98% as it came from the shop in 1971. (Original pedals swapped for safe keeping, new brake pads, bullseye pulleys.)

All Campy, including the brakes. I know Chas will chime in to insist that they didn't come with the expensive Campy brake option directly from the factory, but were added by the shop that sold them.

This could well be. BUT, my '71 came that way when purchased new.

Cool bike Scott,

I wonder, not being very well versed in the subject, just how many French bikes came with a full Campagnolo NR or SR gruppo. I have a circa '73 Motobecane Team Champion, and here is your Lejeune. Were there others?
