Re: 1983 Vitus Superleggera

Interesting that back then not too many frames were brass brazed. . . only other I can think of right now were the Schwins Sting's and Comp's.


Old-Mid-New School it's ALL COOL... Racing- 80's, idle-90's, now just a Cruzin' olde dude on a sweet ride. 
If you see smoke by the tail gate you found Grillie G's BBQ-we will feed you.
