18,906 • My 1972 Gitane Interclub was a gift from the owner of the bike shop I grew up in– Wheels of Northbrook. It was actually his first road bike. I converted to a fixie but kept most of the original components: Brooks B17, Strongarm crankset, Mafac levers/brakes. Stronglight crank, and Pivo stem. Added Mavic MA3 wheelset with Vintage green Vittoria CX tyres. One cool thing: the right seat stay foresaw the advent of the internet age with a decal that, in part, says “email.”
