Vitus Frame Repair

Where can I locate spare tubes to fix a 56cmVitus 979 frame #E0503010? It has the flattened tubes as opposed to the round tubes on most Vitus frames. Who has the knowledge and facility to bond these together if I can find spare tubes or a donor frame? A chainring nut backed out and creased the chainstay and I'd like to return this bike to its former glory. It is a beautiful blue and was equipped with Campy Super Record and Modolo Kronos brakes. Thanks for any leads!

Hmm... well if u get a donor frame (an small frame) u could take the chain stays out and GLUE them/it to the frame u want to fix. U can use super glue or something like that. Well time ago that was the way to go now adays for sure there is better stuff to glue AL.

Well probably the answer is no.

Call the guys in the link below. They were an authorized Vitus repair shop when the frames were popular and should be able to help or point you in the correct direction.
Becareful buying/selling bike parts on-line. I learned the hard way. :(
