1950s Gitane Track Bike

1950s gitane track bike (7)

It’s been a minute since I’ve upped a beautiful bicycle here on Culture Cycles. Life’s been busy and I’ve been getting sick over the past few days, making it hard to push on after a  8-9 hour workday. The good news is, we’ve got the Herringbone Tweed Ride and Monster Mash 3 are coming up over the next two weekends! In the mean time, here’s a 1950s Gitane Track Bike to feast your eyes on. I’ve always been a fan of the fork and crown on these Gitanes; plus the matching gold ano Pivo stem bits really up the classiness of this track bike. Take a peak at some more below thanks to Eisenherz Bikes.

  • What is that crankset?
    It looks like an oddly nice cotter-pin.
