Gitan was a historic Italian brand of Lightweight two-stroke motorcycles built in Italy in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. In 1951 Gitane built motorcycles and light motorcross bikes with two-and four-stroke engines from 49 to 198 cc. In 1957 to 1960 production was mainly aimed at mopeds, although light motorcycles were still being made. In 1961 they added a 50 cc scooter.
In the 60s there was little done to further development of the existing models, even though they were continued to be produced. Only until the 1970s were there new Gitane models launched which were mainly mopeds. In the Netherlands, the Gitane-mopeds went under the name of Tansini, because the name was too similar with others. Tansini was probably also the sponsor of the team Jamathi-motorcycle racing season. In the beginning Jamathi engines were initially used in "Tansini".
Models included the Libeccio 125 (1957), Carnaby 50 (1976) and Cross 50 (1973).
