5 Dec

55cm Vitus road bike from late 80’s, early 90’s! A beautiful specimen of French craftsmanship, frame is built with all aluminum Duralinox 979 tubing with gorgeous aluminum lugs. Frame and fork are all shiny aluminum and free of any dings or scratches with original Vitus graphics of the down tube, BB is stamped “Brevete Vitus Fab-France Modele Vitus Depose” next to the serial number. Listed below are the parts used to rebuild this speedy racer, took most of the winter to put this awesome gruppo together and is extremely crisp and responsive. Entire bike has been built up with an 8 speed Dura-Ace 7400 series gruppo in close to mint condition, hubs, cassette, shifters, derailleurs and brakes.

Wheelset is a pair of Mavic Open S.U.P. CD Ceramic rims laced to a pair of Dura-Ace hubs with stainless spokes and spin very true. These are very lightly used if at all and could be considered new old stock, very true and very smooth, with original Mavic and Colnago stickers in place and original Dura-Ace skewers.

Drive train consists of a sealed Shimano BB, Dura-Ace 7410 crankset 175 lenth with 53t/39t chainrings and all Dura-Ace bolts. Front Der, Rear Der and 8 speed cassette are also Dura-Ace 7410 series with very few miles and no scratches or wear marks, all hooked up with a new Dura-Ace chain. Shifters are a pair of Shimano Dura-Ace ST-7400 that have been completely refurbished and rebuilt with new lithium grease and newer hoods, for a fast, clean and crisp shift every time!

Brakes are a pair of Dura-Ace 7400 series with new pads, cables and housing.
