SOLD SOLD SOLD
I have just brought this bike back from my project pile in France and sorted it out this weekend.
This is a lovely 1985 Gitane Champion in 56cm (seat tube and top tube, both centre to centre). This will fit someone from 5ft9 to 5ft11.
Very versatile bike - it has clearance for 32mm tyres and mudguard eyes so great for the city/commuting/the odd ride out.
It is in great shape, all parts have minimal wear.
I have just fitted new aero brake levers (TRP RL SSR replicas), new inner/outer brake cables, new bar tape and near new tyres.
The tyres are some of the fastest 28mm tyres available on the market at present - they cost £110 for the pair at Sigma
I have also given the bike a look over - it all works as it should, no play or issues - it is ready to ride away and be enjoyed.
I am after £250-> SOLD FOR £220 for the bike.
Test rides from New Cross SE14 are very welcome
Is it on the heavy side as a bike ?
It isn't too bad for a classic steel bike.
It is 10.6kg as it stands, just weighted it for you @user117695
It could be lightened but being turned into a singlespeed. DT shifters/RD/FD/freewheel/ inner chainring weight about 1.5kg.
Happy to do the conversion if that's something you are interested in
And for thoroughness, here is an extract of the 1985 Gitane Catalogue.
Happy to deliver across TfL Zone 1-2-3
I might as well price drop to £220.
Great bike for the money - I am after tandem wheels and 650B carbon wheels so would happily swap.
Hi! Any chance I could come and have a look at this tomorrow?
No news from @user117936 so the bike is still available
This has now SOLD.
Thanks all for the interest!
