I'm hoping to go flipflop..it's a 48...I don't know why but I think it's going to be too small. Someone suggested funny bike. I want to use it for Gold Sprints, Ice Racing and general raging about town. It does still have the headset cup in the bottom.

48 is pretty small, how tall are you? Sometimes small is good for beater action though.

Its a Gen-u-wine track frame. Nice track ends too. I was considering building it up vintage for myself but realistically my fixed riding will be done on my Winterbourne. Not that 2 track bikes would hurt............hmmmmmmm.

If you are 5'8" and the frame is 48cm I hope it came with some free coupons for the chiropractor.

yea, i'm thinking of parting out the c-record sherrif stars or keeping them hung in my bedroom.
they look pretty + they're tired/soldered to campy stradas and omegas.
I'm not keeping most of my bikes and I don't have parts to build up 1/2 of my frames haha.

Well, if you are having trouble finding a home for that bad boy, I would interested as well. 60 cm TT is perfect for me. BB could be a bit of a challenge, but I'm sure I could find something.
