It's a Vitus 979 Duralinox [era 80's]
I have mixed feelings about this frame
but nonetheless it's interesting.
Anyone knows does Vitus still exist?
I tried Vitus.fr but all I got was a black page...
...while searching for Italian/French builts I stumble upon
this person, Frank Spivey, Drilliums [60's-70's]
Quite honestly I've yet to find out who's Frank Spivey
besides drilling stuffs. My knowledge for classics/vintage
began only recently. Thanks to Alan's passion.
So forgive me for the lack of info that I think I ought to be
giving and if you have any please do so :)
... anyways, according to the written claim that that crank
started out as a Campagnolo's Track Record. Good at it I must say.
Look at the sweet drilled hubs.
[A set of hubs Frank machined from aluminum billet in the late 1960s.
Campagnolo axles and bearing races were incorporated]
More to come... fr/it stuffs.
