Hello all, a friend has an old vitus badged as peugeot ( i had one years ago badged as pechiney?) , dont beleive it is sprayed , anyway its very nice with complete gran sport i think, groupset and cobalto brakes, anybody know where he can find out more info on this, on the BB shell it has BREVETE CLB VITUS FAB-FRANCE E086108. Will try to get some pics out of him to make things easier.
Any help gratefully received.
Thanks
Adam

The rough translation (if you had not already sussed it) for what's written on the shell is Trademark CLB Vitus, Made in France and then the serial no.

Peugeot went through a phase of using Vitus steel tubing (IIRC in the mid eighties after their own brand carbolite tubing phase before going back to Reynolds in the late eighties). The s/n E086108 'may' indicate that it's a 1986 model which would tie in correctly.

Bon chance,

Many thanks for the info and link, that looks like the thing, will pass it on. Any idea of value? its very clean. about 58 possible 60 cm so too big for me.
thanks

As with anything secondhand - as much as someone is willing to pay ! Hard to tell without seeing pictures and a bit more detailed spec.
