not exactly cheap are they?
If I remember correctly, vitus frames didnt have any original vitus transfers. Frames were either ridden bare, or were sometimes an after factory fit made by other manufacturers, eg peugeot. A uk pro team even rode them with Coventry eagle stickers.

If you really want stickers cos you think it looks bare, and as youre a peugeot fan, Peugeot stickers would be a goer. If you want to google a looksee for peugeot, I reckon early Robert Millar times (I know he rode Vitus carbon later). Also Sean kelly won paris roubaix on them, but cant remember how they were badged up.

I do have the Peugeot Comete but this has more stress fractures on the cast parts than Captain Stress Fracture's toilet.
