I have received this picture and was wondering what kind of frame this is.
It should be titanium but I don't recognize it.
Who recognizes this frame.
This is the only picture I have and I don't have a serial number.

Similar to an Orange Vit T, although the finish looks odd - not quite like raw Ti.

Thanks for the info but the seatcollar and the cableguides on the toptube seem to be a bit different.
Do you have an idea of the value if it is an Orange Vit T?

If its around 20" in size send it here and I'll run some tests and let you know what it is. May take a few months/years.

I just found this post on a Vitus .
I have one too.
I do a lot of research on it, impossible to find informations.
I met a person of reserch and development , who told me he was never marketed .
They remained in the prototype / pre-production.

Just an article on VTT Magazine :
