Very stylish!

That said, I wonder if they called it a dragster because after riding it 1/4 mile... you're done.

Same goes for what I rode at that age too.

Possibly the most-quoted misinformation ever; I'd swear it's been around since before aluminum was on the Periodic Table... then again, maybe not.

I like that. One could also make up a vaguely italian-sounding name for the bike, in the expectation that in 30 years it's new owner would post "have you seen one of these?" ;)

And I wouldn't touch a bike with aero levers/cables/hoods, unless it can be "undone". Fortunately, I'm discovering that C&V is a big tent.

I did a Google images search on "1971 Gitane". Found almost none w/fenders, and those few were different than I described, possibly/probably added later. So I don't feel so bad now.

I was line-up official at auto-x for years, long ago; single marque events are frustrating. "OK, you line up behind the Corvette, which will be behind the Corvette, which will be behind...". :twitchy:

For me, somewhere around 2065. My daily ride is LF but those just seem so much easier to find. For other bikes most of my wheels are HF and I hope to keep them that way.

I'd rather risk replacing the spokes. Or risk walking home 20 miles.

YMMV

(OTOH, it's been a while since I've even been in the lowest sprocket, so I wouldn't be risking much)
