Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

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.
