A friend of one of the people who works here was in with an interesting child's road bike to sell, and I thought somebody out there could use it.

It's a Gitane, drop-bar 3-speed, pretty much all steel, with extension levers on the brakes and a skinny plastic saddle.

It uses 450A wheels, (18 inch) present tires are structurally OK and hold air, but the sidewalls are pretty much alligatored.

Down tube shift lever, Simplex derailer.

Seat tube 36 cm center-to-top

Top tube 40 cm

Cranks 110 mm cottered steel

The bike is red, has some surface rust on the rims, paint is decent.

The owner is hoping to get $200 for it, which seems reasonable to me. It's in the Boston area.

Her name is Harley, and her email is harleymtb@yahoo.com.

If you're interested, or have any questions, contact her, not me.
