Hi there does anybody have any information/pictures on Gitane tour de france?
I believe they were first built in the 70s and the blue framed version is harder to find, not sure if thats true
Any info would be great

Here is a US site from some fans of Gitanes, there's some info about models on there:

From that site it seems the 'Team Pro' might be the hard to find blue version you mentioned - a copy
of the models used by professional riders.

The Super Corsa seems to be the more widely available higher end model with Campagnolo components.

The TdF was a more mass market effort with Simplex components.

As the site says, the whole model range was confusing with components and decals mismatched between models.
