Please help me identify this frame!

I just picked this bike up from a scrapyard for $5. Its loaded up with Campagnolo components, and looks very quality. The logo is partially worn off. Thanks in advance guys!

Welcome to the forums DrBrianWillisto. Nice looking bike. The partial sticker by the shifters is a Vitus tubeing decal. The Components are Victory, manufactured from about '84 to 89ish

Thanks for the warm welcome! All the components are definitely Campagnolo, it's got their name and logo everywhere. I cant seem to find an image of a Vitus tubing decal that matches this either, it almost looks like it is just three letters...

I'm having trouble envisioning a Vitus decal like that, as well.

BG is identifying the model name for the Campagnolo equipment and the years they are made, i.e. Campagnolo Victory components. Hope that is helpful. I can't help with the frame ID. Best of luck.

You might try M&M Cyclery in Mundelein. The address is different from the one on the sticker but they may be able to tell you what brands they have sold over the years.

Maybe I just looked to quick it looked like a beat up Vitus decal to me.

I could be wrong but I keep wanting to say something French. These dropout look nice but something is pulling at my brain about the little kink where the fender eye is.

They aren't forged so it is obviously a nice production frame.



This doesn't look like a CampI bottom bracket (BB), and the spindle looks short for a Victory BB.
@DrBrainWillisto, are the bubs CampI? Is there anything on the rims?

I believe you are right about it being a french frame, the cable guides on the bottom do say made in france. The front rim is a Mavic 195 622x13 (700c) with a Shimano RSX hub. The rear is matrix titan II 27" with a unbranded hub.

Those dropouts should be a giveaway for someone here. I've never seen ones quite like that. Lugwork looks nice
