'New' bike - Gitane

So I pranged my bike on Monday and instead of blowing £300 on a new frameset (Mrs L inisists we haven't got it) I bought this off my neighbour, who bought it at auction in Holland and was seeking my advice for a price on ebay.


Now I thought Gitane was a brand of Gallic cigarettes. No matter, it weighs a bit, comes with dynamo lighting. The chrome is in decent condition, the tyres are shot though and I don't want to invest in 28" tyres. Seat is top notch - I paid him £40 on account of this :-)

Now I'm a bit of a roadie, I just can't see myself getting lycra'd up to get this thing to and from work. What does one wear on a European touring bike anyway?
