I have a very similar bike (Gitane tandem, mixte frame and no S bend in the rear seat tube). I bought it secondhand so I am not exactly sure of the year. However it is almost totally original. Judging from articles I have read and the genral style of the bike I would place it around early 1980s.
By the way, I am missing the original front Mafac cantilever break. If you have one or know where to find one let me kow.
