Vitus 979

This is a decent-looking bike…


Vitus 979 Campagnolo Vintage Road Bike 52cm – $750 (Trumbull)

I believe this is an early 80’s Vitus 979. The overall condition is excellent for its age. It is mostly equipped with Campagnolo components with the exception of a Shimano 600 headset and a Suntour superb pro seatpost. Comes with Sugino bottom bracket. It has a Cinelli 100mm stem and Cinelli 54-38 handlebar with Cinelli cork tape. The wheels have Campagnolo high flange hubs with Wolber Super Champion tubular rims with Hutchinson Tempo 1 tires. Front tire has good tread but the rear will need to be replaced in the near future. The chain is a Suntour AP and the freewheel is a Sachs YL94 7 speed. Pedals are Look Carbon Pro. Saddle is a Turbo gel. I am not sure which Campagnolo group this is but the pictures should tell.

The bike measures:

52cm from center of BB to top of top tube

53cm top tube center to center

The only part that could use replacement is the brake hoods which have some tears and dry rot.
