I have a Chorus unit (same as Record but without logo and it says Chorus). It has Vitus seat clamp marks to the rear but apart from that it's pretty minty. I've listed it to appear on eBay within the next few days but happy to pull it if interested. I was kind of hoping for it to go for 50 quid.

Yeah, you'll need a lot of wet n' dry to get your 25.4 into your 979.

It's worth noting that Vitus did make their own 25 & 25.4 seatposts which had a flat rear especially designed for their clamp fixing bolts, and actually they are very nice posts if a tad hard to source.

I'm going to be cheeky and say no I'm afraid, reason being that I live in France and shipping will be £8

But here's a pic...
