I own a Vitus. I purchased it new in 1989. It had (has) Campy Super Record on it along with Cinelli bars and stem. It came with tubular
rims.......I have replaced them with clinchers..........still using the original super record hubs. In 1989 I paid 1395.00 for this bike. The photo you have attached: The bike appears to be in very good to excellent condition and looks like it has a top end crank, derailluers, brakes, stem, seat post, bars.......etc.... Looks like old campy crank (super record....maybe record) and campy record rear derailluer. The rims may be original.....the seat have been replaced.
Many people kinda look down on the Vitus because it is glued together and many say it is to whippy. I still own mine, I don't race, but i ride it all the time, i never abuse it. It has worked for me since the 1989 purchase. I have owned other bikes, including a light speed. The Vitus is a very comfortable bike.....riding all day is a pleasure. I will never sell mine. In fact, I rode it today. What's it worth? Depends upon who you talk to. I would buy it if was a good price........offer them 850.00 (you could always sell the components piece by piece on ebay and make up your money.
