I have posted Fignon's bikes on here before, but today is a day to celebrate the man. Laurent Fignon has passed on to the next life after a battle with cancer. He truly knew how to rock the powertail like a champ.
Here is another look at Laurent Fignon's Gitane pursuit bike, which I previously posted about. Designed to beat the hour record, but was never attempted with this bike. A shame that such a freakish speed machine never got to perform.
I just purchased a Gitane track frame today so I thought I would do a little digging for more Gitane goodies. I came across this spectacular beast, which was intended to go for the hour record but it never got used.
