Here's a pic of my Vit T. I bought it a number of years ago from someone who 'rescued' it and replaced a lot of the components (LX front & rear mechs, for example). I now know it's a 93 model. Frame no. A3061060.

I always knew it was good, and a few years ago tried to find out a bit about it, and whether I could retrofit a rear disc hanger. Now I know how precious it is, I'd like to restore it to some form of former glory, but don't know what the spec should be. Can anyone help? Is there a brochure available anywhere? Can I get decals from somewhere?

It's not for sale, sorry. I love the ride - it's better than my old, early 90's Saracen Kili Flyer framed homebrew thing that got nicked in Peterborough in 1992, which I thought, at the time, was perfect.

Pwoar. More pictures more pictures.
And welcome
I Love vit Ts.
Here's the brochure link ... atalogues/

And Gil_M is the man for decals.
I do have 1 original decal, but only 1 an dim saving it for when / if I ever get one : )

Pace RC35's ( the right year ones ) a bit of XtR a bit of Hope and some Middleburn would be my suggestion.
And maybe a USE post too.
