I have 3 Vitus 979s and 2 of them ( early 1980s bikes)have been ridden many times over pretty rough terrain in France when taking part in various retro events eg Anjou Velo Vintage.No sign of any joint failures.[Speed wobble is something different,I think- what exactly happened?]However, these...
A friend has one with the original receipt-2 careful lady owners!19” size.
She’s looking to sell it with my help. And from what I can see there aren’t many of these around.It’s all original spec inc tyres.I will be able to get some photos in due course.
Any ideas re asking price?
The Tour de Rance 2022 would certainly be worth going to,but unfortunately the website states that there is still some uncertainty about whether Covid safety requirements will prevent it going ahead.There will be some news at the end of March.
Such a shame about Vélo Vintage- it was fantastic...
It’s worth having a look at what a Vitus in reasonable condition will fetch on EBay etc.I have 4 including 1 NOS ( none of them black but yours is way too big for me!)and none of them cost anywhere near £1000 so perhaps review the price?Great you’ve owned from new and know all about it.Good...
Wonderful!I have the same model/year Raleigh waiting for restoration.My problem is suitable wheel replacements.I have the originals but rims totally shot.Everything else is battered but ok.
Yours is an inspiration and lovely to see on this rainy day.
Re: Prestige cycles- Mustard bikes

Mustard bikes was/is one of the bike brands Prestige offers-Perhaps the house brand.I remember them in the shop when it was based in Hove and they were nice looking...
I have a battered Pearson alu frame - any recommendations re companies in/around Brighton that would do a reasonable and not expensive job including prep?
I have thought about using Bike.spray as well - anyone have any experience of this product?
Not black,Italian and a mutant stem which really suits it!Lovely to look at - bet it rides well.And nothing wrong with French forks...
Was wondering what to do with my Mutant stem-now I know- get a Bianchi!
I have a frame and forks and what seem to be to be original wheels-I need a derailleur hanger which allows the wheel to sit far enough back in the dropout.What would work?
Oh yes-and seat-post size?
Thanks for help
