Andrew - Dang ! I wrote that info down when I first researched the serial number and other details from the web and now I can't find it. So right now all I have is my own 3x5 card for a ref - and that's not enough for me. This bike has a similar down tube decal saying double butted cro-moly ... So I annotated the listing on eBay and have to retract the Vitus comment here, as well. I know I saw it, because I wouldn't have jotted it down otherwise ... That'll teach me (again, maybe) to just hit the print button.

It is interesting that some of the gear is different from the apparent '72 era standard. They came with Ukai wheels, and this has Mavic w/ Normandy hubs. Being a bit of a Francophile, I'd call those upgrades. ;-)

Bob- A question. How do you know that the tubing is Vitus Team 750?
