Hi all,
I have purchased this bike with blue anodised 105 brakes and other 105 parts on it except for the seatpost.

it has been painted over top of what looks to be pink on the bike.

Not a heavy bike so wondering what it is.

Nice seatpost lug at top.
Double bottle bosses fitted.
Gipiemme Dropout.
Nice seat stays where they join top of seatpost.
Colour under the silver.
Rear drop out adjusters
105 groupset.
Leads me to believe it used to be a nice framed bike.
any ideas ?
any ideas?

Looks quite similar to my Gitane, but away being painted so cannot check.

Certainly a quality frame but what it may be I've no idea. Someone might recognise that rear bridge arrangement. Could be mid eighties? Any numbers on the BB?
Look after those pedals, difficult to find with the plastic toe piece intact. Been looking for one for ages

Me too in fact I am surprised no one makes copies of them .

My first thought was French. I did think maybe Mercier due to the pink colour but cable guides under top tube made me think again. Does have a serial number on bottom bracket. See picture

Don't know why but Motobecane came to mind.
