Wow! a Franco/Italo beauty!
Haven't seen a Vitus Carbone so decked out in such top line Campy jewels!
I agree about changing the chain to something more interesting looking, like maybe a silver or Nickel colored narrow Sedis/Sachs.
Just curious about your wheelset. tubs I presume? With C-record or Chorus hubs? What are the rims? Love the touch with the French tires. I should do that for my Carbone one day.....
I notice the visible carbon material that must have been clear coated over. I think The Carbone 7 might actually be the same under its satin black frame paint. A bit of elbow grease to clean up and polish the lugs, BB shell, DO's and head tube should be icing on the cake...
Thanks for posting these shots! We don't see enough of these bikes in this condition and built up so well!
