Golden Vitus 979 restored and turnt into commuter.

The framset is extremely rare as it has no internal routing for the rear brake cable and has fender eyelets in the fork.
Check out also the uncommon green fork decals for 979 dural.

I am guessing this is one of the first ever models of this bike.
Geometry also looks a little bit different form the next versions, the chain stay is longer, probably it got shortened to get a better stiffness?

Would appreciate any further info.
Serial number: A0065XX

Really interesting

Really interesting and unique frame. Clean. A lot of people love the Vitus tubing as well. Nice to see something so unique.... Even more rare is something like this eyed for commuter status. Indeed, the crankset is probably worth more on the market than the frame itself. It might be a bit sketchy locking this thing up around town while at work, bar, shopping, etc. But yeah, nice ride. Know you use the brakes up there but might consider the traditional placement of period brakes, giving you hoods to use and drops if need be. IF ever in drops, moving to those levers is an ordeal.

Yeah, I know the brake

Yeah, I know the brake levers are a crime :) , thanks for the positive comments! I move it from my home to my office, never lock it outdoors, as you mentioned, too provocative ;)

amazing bike...
