Could this frame have set a record?
[I bumped a thread with this query on the SSFG Forum, and then it occured to me that, Hey, I finally have something to post about in the real Track forum, and that it's real trackies that might know the answer to this.]
I bought this frame off of eBay:
and it has these decals:
There were some weird things about the listing (it was listed as a "Pyramid" frame, I've since determined that it's a "Porter," made by Dave Porter of New Mexico [thanks to Don Walker for helping me figure that out]). In conversations with the eBay seller, he says that the frame used to belong to John Frey, and I was just pipedreaming that MAYBE he set a record with this frame, but then I was like, Nah, it's drilled for brakes, and then I read in another thread that Frey was known for running brakes on his competition bikes. Hmm.
I emailed Dave Porter, so maybe we'll see, but any input anyone has would be really appreciated.
