Hi friends,

Just for your eyes, my very rare Vitus titanium.
I do a lot of research on it, impossible to find informations.
I met a person of reserch and development , who told me he was never marketed .
They remained in the prototype / pre-production.

Just an article on VTT Magazine :

First mount, search matching parts :

Very nice. Jan Janssen sold Vitus frames under the Jan Janssen name in the Netherlands. On one expo, around 1994, they showed a Jan Janssen Titanium. Perhaps it is the same frame.

I've checked and it is listed as a frame only, (no fork), in the 97 catalogue. PM me your e mail if you would like a pdf copy
