Hey, I have a fixed gear bike, with a track frame. I'm trying to find out the method of weld, looks like the tubes are pinched over the hangers and welded. What When and Where was this typically used or done? Sorry for the lame photo.
Seeing as this hasnt had a reply, I'll give it a shot.
a) its not a track bike, the dropouts face the wrong way and the geometry is too long
b) the quality of a joint like that suggests mass produced gaspipe frame
c) the stamped dropouts probably support this case
d) nice Telecaster
As far as hallmarks of a maker goes, its a bit of a nothing. It could be from anyplace, anytime I'm afraid.
