1982/3 Gitane Vuelta Velo   for sale

1982/3 Gitane Vuelta Velo  (2942) in Noir Tulip (Eroica Perfect)

 

The Vuelta Velo is one of my favourite vintage bike models, I ride one myself (1979) but this 1982/3 version is lighter and more aerodynamic. and not only that, it possesses a TA Specialties triple Chain Set, making  hill climbs more comfortable for the rider. The bike is perfect for any Eroica, Anjou Vintage Velo or similar event.

A note about our vintage velo's

 

All Items are genuine vintage and whilst in full working order, may also so show signs of age or own some distinguishing marks. As well as these signs of character  there may also be some signs of rust (faint and few) and some signs of mottling on the chrome. We're possible we have tried to show these on photographs. These small imperfections and are commensurate with what is expected of a bike of this age.The bikes are not new.

 

About this bike

 

Item is vintage and whilst in full working order, does show signs of age , there may be some signs of rust (faint and few) and some signs of mottling on the chrome. In addition there may be marks or scratches which I have tried to show on photographs and are commensurate with what is expected of a bike of this age. Other defects may be written about in the general description of the bike.

 

In Particular this bike is marked and there are some small signs of restoration throughout. There is very light spotting on the chrome of the front forks. the farme has some small marks and scratches as you would expect after 35 years.
