More Info:
For all I found out it was neather the "Tour de France" nor the "Tour d'Avenir" model - what I originaly thought - but a Super Corsa. In this time there were several options for the 531 Reynolds frame from Gitane, the more expensive had chromed rear stays - the pro's models no visible chrome (!). Then there was a rage of variations for the choice of components wich could help to identify the final name of the complete bike. Bought this as frame / fork and built it up with more or less period parts. Super nice to ride

@moik: seen those in a few other bikes, Dusika and other brands. I wouldn't say it was standard but they did tend to use that in the seventies.
By the way this is a stunning, beautiful bike!

Nice! Takes me back to the 70's and my club racing days on a Gueciotti- steel w/Campy Record/sewups/all clamp on elements- bottle cage, cable guides, pump holder- lots of steel! It still only weighed about 20 lbs. I wish I had that bike now! I like your collection!

Thank you sir! It is as you say - with all the parts it is still light and so comfortable to ride! I like what you wrote about the 70's...
