Vitus 979 Racing Bike


For sale the amazing bicycle that is this Vitus 979 Dural.

The Vitus came in different colour options but the most desirable version is silver as in this fine example. The frame has seamless bonding between tubes and lugs is made of polished aluminium as are the forks. It truly is beautiful to look at, the pictures just don’t do it justice.

Sean Kelly the famous cycle racer was synonymous with the Vitus marque during the peak of his professional career, when according to his own estimation he rode Vitus bikes to victory in no less than 80% of his pro career wins which included winning the Vuelta, the green jersey on the TDF and seven consecutive Paris-Nice wins amongst many others. There is not much more you can say about the quality of this frame.

It takes on hills with ease and is a joy to ride. Whoever sees this bike first will buy it.
