    I saw this while trawling the dark corners of the interwebz. For sale locally for peanuts. This is the only image. I can't find any info online about Gitane duallies. Anyone know what it is? It looks like it could have potential .... Is it worth a resurrection?

Solid, really well balanced, a bit weighty, but smooth in flight and landing. Flowy. I bought it for the wheel set...
