Gitane Bonded Tube Frame

Saw a rather nice Gitane in France yesterday. It seemed to have bonded tube frame. Between my level of French and the old boys' country patois I didn't make much progress in my enquiries. Can anybody throw some light on it. It might have had a shimano 600 group set but I am not really an expert.

I do believe this to be an Alan (made in Italy) frame. They made for many other marques amongst them Gitane. All aluminium tubes and lugs but they were screwed and glued into each other.
This is my 1981 Alan which I bought here just a few weeks ago. Beautiful bikes and very light.
Shimano tricolour 600 groupset.
