Vintage Lightweight Aluminium Vitus 979 Alpine Road Racing Bike Campagnolo

Vintage Lightweight Aluminium Vitus 979 Alpine Road Racing Bike Campagnolo. Condition is "Used". Collection in person only.For sale is my freshly built up Vitus 979. The frame is a 56, but I am 6ft and it works perfectly size whise. I have ridden this bike once since building it, due to the winter, but circumstances changing forces sale. I can’t have it sitting in the living room any longer!!! The parts include; -Nitto lightweight bullhorn bars -Tekro chrome levers -Shimano SLR cabling -F Belleri stem (ideally change the stem for betting fitting into the forks) -Campagnolo Headset -Shimano 105 breaks and pads -Campagnolo 25mm seat post designed for the vitus -Mavic rims -700c 23mm Gatorskins with little wear -Shimano Decore X hubs -Shimano HG50 cassette -Shimano HG slimline chain -Campagnolo 2 speed braze on front derailleur -Campagnolo rear derailleur -Sachs Hurret braze on shifters -MKS GT-LITE pedals -Beautiful and rare Campagnolo Rossin chainset. 48/52 The vitus 979 has a huge pedigree in the vintage alpine racing scene, as is well regarded as a lightweight bike even keeping up with its modern counterparts. It’s truly a pleasure to ride, but would suggest it’s more suited to a light weight rider due to the aluminium construction. I own other Vitus 979’s, and cannot recommend them enough. The only things I would change on the bike, are the hubs are slightly to wide for the frame, meaning you can’t set the derailer to go onto the biggest cassette ring, and also slightly bending the frame when putting into the drops, & changing the stem to a more suitable mechanism for a tighter fit. Please let me know if you have any questions and would like other pictures. Thanks
