Sadly no.

I'm logging my collection on here, and then will start to sell them off.

Re: 1982 Vitus

My cousin raced on a mid-80s Vitus road bike. I always liked Vitus. lesser known, ahead of the pack in some aspects, but very cool all around!

Re: 1982 Vitus

I typically don't get boners from aluminum frames but I will make an exception for this one.  That frame is sick.

Re: 1982 Vitus

Very cool. How are the tubes connected, I don't see any welds. hmm
