I bought this titanium frame some time ago. No markings, only the serial number on the bottom bracket. The 84 probably stands for 1984 as the bike was fitted with Campy's 50th Anniversary gruppo. The BB is Italian threaded. Any ideas?

Frame Bottom of bottom bracket showing cable guides and serial number

  • I had seen that guides on bottom brackets for derailleur cables on Vitus frames, and the fact that it's built with titanium makes me think this can be a Vitus frame. But it's just an idea... – acidrums4 Jun 28 '15 at 0:12
  • I would ask in the C&V subforum over at Bikeforums. I'd be surprised if someone doesn't know. bikeforums.net/classic-vintage – Zippy The Pinhead Aug 9 '15 at 3:45
  • I'm tempted to say it's mine. – andy256 Oct 28 '15 at 5:06
  • Ship it to me for further inspection ^^ – gaurwraith Jan 26 '16 at 22:32

    Did you find out what the bike is? I have one of these bikes as well and have serial number 47, see below... – Andrew Watson Aug 9 '19 at 21:39

This frame has some features in common with this Fracesco Moser frame I saw. But there are differences, as well: the chainstays, and the fork.


This purports to be a 1984 Moser:



Looks pretty much identical to the OP's frame.

    This one has lugs, the OP's frame has smooth welds. – ojs Aug 9 '19 at 22:09

    Other obvious differences include seatstay joint, fork crown and front derailleur mount. All together, they are about as different as two 80s road bikes can be. – ojs Aug 9 '19 at 22:12

    @ojs - Yeah, I missed that detail. – Daniel R Hicks Aug 9 '19 at 22:13

    Aside from the differences in joints then, what aspects of that photo prove it is a moser? I don't know enough to rule it in, or rule it out, it needs a bit more explanation – Swifty Aug 10 '19 at 7:36

    If you look at the OP's bike, there is a FD braze on, not a dent. – ojs Aug 10 '19 at 18:09
