Just noticed this thread, love the Vitus with Sean Kelly provenance.
I used the compete at National Level with Boardman, O'bree etc...but moved on to cars. Would like to see pics of it built up. Nice work!
Edit: If it's of interest, I do have 'in period' photos of TDF bikes, and specifically, those ridden by Mr Kelly, happy to send via WhatsApp. Mavic and/or Campag is the right stuff, Chorus would work nicely, but not cheap these days.

Sorry I've not responded to your post. Only just seen it. Your "palmares" far exceeds mine . . . Gone for Campag Record wheel set with tubs.
Scouring the world for kit. Got Chorus seat post from Latvia! and a pair of Campag downtube shifters from Berlin!!
The rest is going to be expensive, I fear. I saw an entire 50th Anniversary Campag Record groupset in presentation box for 5,000 Euros. Won't be buying that.

Wish you all the best in your search and look forward to seeing pics. Sounds like a lot of fun.
Feel free to message me if you want to talk classic pushbikes :-)

Project slowed a bit due to other interests. But I promised myself it would be on the road by April.. May, at the latest.
Been planning NC 500 run and Jim Clark Memorial at Hockenheim, it's all bloody go!!

My hope of having the Vitus on the road this year has evaporated due to inertia on my part and other things getting in the way. I still need to source a bottom bracket and headset plus some bars. The current state of the project
