    Track Frame Identification (?)

    I have an old track frame that I'm trying to identify. It has been repainted so the original maker is unknown, but it's got an "LA" stamped into the lugs of the forks.

    Anyone know this marque?

    Here's a photo of the fork.

    Thanks

    Yeah, it's a nice setup. Now I just have to figure out what it is.

    Since Ceya already told you that it was La Pointe...I would second that opinion..

    The LA is right above the "Point" of the fork crown...

    maybe la stands for left arm like the left arm of the fork. check and see if the other side says ra.
    "besides me, everyone else in sarasota florida with a "fixed gear bike" can get f*cked.. this includes but is not limited to, ringling art nerds, new college hippies, nathan fabian, and the dude that lives down street.
