Re: 1982 Vitus

I never got a chance to ride one of these, but I always thought they looked cool. 
That Sprocket looks like a Shimano BioPace.  I question the sanity of using one without some sort of a chain tensioner, but it's cool nonetheless.

Hello, you're right. It is a Shimano BioPace. Very strange system without the chain tensioner..... Didn't work well so we don't see it that often.

A vitus frame is glued together, not welded.

Re: 1982 Vitus

I think I know that bike. Is it a small frame.  if So It was raced by an Alex Mcgigan who was from Morecam in Lancashire in the noorth West of England.  In the 80's .  He was my arch rival but loved Hutch Bikes.  Infact the bike he had before that was a hutch mini.  If it is the same bike it was stickered up with hutch stickers and had hutch forks " I think", but it definetly had the Hutch bear traps and the Hutch Pads.  I wanted that bike so much.  If it is the same bike it had 1 3/8 ths area rims on.  Alex also had an older brother who was a lot bigger but I can't remember if he had a vitus as well.  Where did the bike come from?
