<< New Old Stock Vitus steel lugged frame - Awesome lugs!!

Item number: 290298000644 >>

Frame made for "Hootie Owl" (Houdaille) PowerCam drive system... http://www.classicrendezvous.com/USA/PowrCam_main.htm

Not sure who made these (trek made the inventor's first odd ball drive bikes, the "BioCam") but for the seller to say the lugs are 'awesome' is a bit hyperbolic... They are bog stock Bocama with relatively indifferent assembly finesse. Serviceable to be sure but...

But an interesting bit of cycling's eccentric inventors history...
