not a full resto,
just getting it cleaned up and seeing if it's worth spending time on.
it's pretty rusty and neglected as you will see.
new brake cables and the Weinmann 810s from the Gitane.
810 I realised refers to the reach, i.e. the 810s are longer reach than the 730s.
the only 1/8 chain I had was a half-link chain.
original steel wheels
kooky high BB position and short wheelbase
hey! I've seen those brake levers before!
learning about SA hubs...
like one of those "magic-eye" pics from years ago.
so will it be worth spending more time on?
it was pretty neglected.
but when the Gitane ha returned to its owner
this will make a good bike to tootle down the shops on.
