unknown moser frame

Just Found a Moser frame in my garage, and am thinking of building it up. it. know almost nothing about the frame, accept that it is made out of extremely thin steel, and is very very light. it has a campanoglo bb. can anybody tell me more information. there seems to be little info on the internet. Is it a road frame, track or blank? it has no break mounts. but cant have the shift cables and break cables go through the frame.

I would like to know how to find a frame in my garage.


Are you sure it's not aluminum? See if a magnet sticks to it. It is a track bike, made to be ridden without brakes.

haha well its quite simple actually. Buy a frame from your ex. buddy. that was going to "give it" to a bike shop for 10$ to get new tires for his daughters bike. than house it in your garage with various car parts.

i just cant decide to make it into a track bike or just put a back break on it, and make it into a road bike. here on long island there is 1 velodrome, but a few paths with yuppies around every corner, although i do love to scare the crap out of them when i come blowing by yelling obscenities

That Zero frame sticker suggests steel, but the look of those welds say aluminum. My guess is aluminum with the wrong sticker. A magnet will tell the tale.

Not drilled for brakes and rear-face dropouts makes it a track frame.

i'd have to agree that it looks like aluminum due to those bulky welds and the rear drops say track frame. looks like a fixie project.
