1983 Vector Mark 2

This is a 3rd gen Vector Mark 2, which makes it either an '84 or '85.

This Vector frame arrived in very nice condition for its age.
No major work needed to be done, so the dark red candyman powder was applied without a problem.
I love the look of the twin down-tubes, it must have been a radical frame in the early '80s.
Quick run-down on the parts list (not complete):
* Vector Mark 2 frame
* Johnny Chopper Bottema forks
* Crupi 180 cranks
* Form chainring ( the arrows are like vectors, geddit? )
* Peregrine stem
* Odyssey pedals
* MX 901 w/ chrome DX lever
* Alex chrome 48h rims
* GT Mohawk sealed hubs
* TNT seat clamp
* home fabricated bar ends
Bike is now SOLD.

Re: 1983 Vector Mark 2

Hey Crue, didn't see your post till just now...
Thanks for the nice words - much appreciated big_smile
The color really is very nice - it doesn't really stand out in the pix at all, but its a deep red with candy-man sparkle in it.
You'll see it come alive when its in the sun, but another one of those shades that don't photograph well.

Re: 1983 Vector Mark 2

Thanks Dunc, I was lucky enough to be able to get one of these Vector frames, and as you can see, here is the result.
These Vectors do come up once in a while for sale, but as with anything, when you're looking for one, you can never find it !
