    1986 Vitus 979/Suntour Superbe Pro

    This bike is ready to ride and Summer is here. I built it in 1986 using the best components I could afford:

    Vitus 979 bonded aluminum frame & fork 52cm
    Stronglight Hinault headset
    Suntour Superbe Pro front & rear deraillers
    Suntour 12-21 freewheel 7 cogs 126mm
    Ofmega Super Competizione crankset with 52/42 chainrings
    Suntour Superbe Pro brakes & levers
    Suntour Accushift shift levers
    Suntour Superbe Pro seatpost
    Serfas leather seat & new bar wraps
    Campagnolo rims with Phil Wood sealed bearing hubs
    New Michelin Pro 4 tires & tubes

    I've always maintained it very well keeping it in the excellent condition you see in the pictures. I've ridden it maybe 200-250 miles per year. Some years not at all. I'd like it to go to a new home where it will be appreciated. Price $550 plus shipping or pick it up in Salem NH. Bob: 978-eight-zero-six-1923, rmccomiskie-at-eksemel-dot-com.
