Bought it on Ebay. From the UK. A 1980 'top of the line' frame. The Shimano DURA ACE EX 7200 version was named Trophée, the Campagnolo RECORD version Olympic. This one has a white G at the front. Was only used on 1980-bikes.

Good luck with this project. Are you planning on rebuilding it back to original spec?

Yes and no. I will go for the 'original' Shimano Dura Ace EX 7200 group again. Stem and handlebar will be Cinelli. (C1R/Record and campione del Mondo.) Wheels (black) Mavic GP4. Seat: Concor Supercorsa van San Marco.

Very nice bike you have built there!

Thanks for pointing out the white headtube decal! I did not notice that before. My Profil is also from 1980 and thus needs a white decal as well (it currently has the later yellow and black decals fitted).

Love it , Gintanes are lovely riding and rather underrated. What tires do you have on there?

I got the information about the white G from gitaneusa.com
Another bike I bought from the first owner also has the white G. The man said he bought the bike in 1982. So it could be that the white G is linked to the production year 1980. See the French 1980 catalogue.

Yes, on pictures of Hinault from LBL 1980 and the TdF it looks like the HT decals were white. Black in 1981.
