Hi, as a newbie, please find some photos of my Vitus 979. This is my old road bike from the early '90s. It was languishing in my shed until last Christmas, when I fancied a bit of a project. Considering I haven't paid it any attention for 15 years it's cleaned up pretty well.

Still needs a few bits. If anyone can identify my Campagnolo front quick release, I would love to have a matching one for the rear wheel (the existing one is broken). I also need a conical Allen key 'nut' that goes on the end of the rear brake bolt (Dura-Ace 7400) and a Dura Ace 7400 head set.

Tidy..one of the lightest bikes about in its day!

Think its an early Chorus Q/R...search ebay for 'campagnolo skewer' or similar, they show up all the time.
