Bernard Hinault

Gitane is a French producer of bicycles. The company has its headquarters in Machecoul (Loire-Atlantique), and belongs to the Cycleurope group.
The translation of Gitane is gypsy woman.

In 1923 Marcel Brunelière (1893-1973) starts a forge and agricultural repair shop in Machecoul. He made bicycle parts and assembled bicycles for other brands. Seven years later, in 1930, he started his own line, bicycles of the brand Gitane. From 1953 he also produced motorcycles.
In 1976 Renault took over the company. In 1985 Gitane was sold again. In 1992 it went together with Cycles Peugeot and the Spanish BH, forming the Cycleurope group.
