I found this at an estate sale for $10. It's sorta beat up, and I'm debating between making it fixed or just keeping it a 10-speed. From what I can tell, it's a Peugeot, but this only becuase I read that they put 'Champion du Monde' on a bunch of their bikes and it has Lyotard pedals. Anyway, any help would be appreciated. Oh, and sorry for the crappy pictures.




That's the only stamped number I could find on the bike, other than...



...a faint '61'.





The text reads, "Speacial Tour de France".







Looks like hand-detailed lugs.



Not the usual round pattern I've seen while looking at Peugeots.


And the teaser: I just painted the frame of my '61 Schwinn Traveler.

Well, it's not a Gitane, but I don't know what it is. It sure uses a lot of similar components; Simplex shifting stuff, Lyotard pedals, MAFAC racer brakes, etc...
If anyone has an idea, let me know.
