A couple of pieces to swap and it's good to go!

I really want a bike like this. Looks like an awesome ride.

Here are a few...I will have to dig up pictures of the San Rensho and the Carrera Track Bike (Stephen Roche model).

Some of these were set up for group rides on the road or for training on the road, so I threw a temporary front brake on them.

What a waste of some really nice old Campy track pedals.

I am still building the bike...toe clips and straps not installed yet....not sure how I am wasting the pedals, but I also have another pair of NOS Campy Titanium Pista pedals that I am wasting on a shelf in my garage.

Sweet bike!

My suggestion: Box section tubulars (preferably GL330's or GEL280's), 36h 4 cross, tied and soldered. Take it ALL the way to the old school!

Very nice...thanks for the suggestion. I actually thought about that change but was hesitant. I have only had it about 2 months. The Sheriff Stars need that set-up :)

On the practical side, I've heard some people do not recommend radial lacing with those hubs. While they are beautiful hubs (and definitely right for that bike!) it is said that that period was not Campy's best in terms of quality control. There have been some broken hubs, it seems.

I will not use this bike for competition...it is just a project to have fun with and to ride on the track casually. They might have issues if ridden hard...I hope they will be ok. Thanks for the heads up. Any pics of your bikes?

Gios still makes them. They're not available from their US distributor, but I'm sure you could track one down if you emailed them.

NPG3 11-11-09 02:54 PM

Very nice...thanks...I wonder if they do it in the original chrome? I will look into it.

^^^^^What tape is that? ...very nice. Is it white with some red? It is tough to tell. I like it.

Here's a pic of my obsolete racing machine, IF this works (seems the attachment upload protocol has changed)....

Nope. I give up.

here is my Vintage Zollo track bike. I have since upgraded to a Campagnolo crank and a brooks swift saddle.
