Vitus 787 Futural update

Here's the first thread and before pics: https://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...ral?highlight=

Since then I've hunted and collected most of the Mavic parts needed. A stem, bars and brake levers would be a bonus if I can find them for less than the fortune normally asked. Stripping and polishing the rear triangle and head tube was a lot of work. The frame was on a stand next to my tool box at work. I'd sand a little here and there between parts (sometimes ). I've got the 500RD hubs and am still looking for a pair of 28 hole rims to build them up, I'm hoping for some nice Mavic tubulars like some GL330s. That should get the wieght down to <20lbs or so. For now I've got a pair of mismatched but nice wheels on C-Record hubs holding it up. And now on to the after pics...

(still need to pick up a set screw to replace this thing!)
