vintage tt to pursuit conversion
ok so here's the deal: I recently purchased a 1984 shogun kaze funny bike for almost nothing ($150 including kashimax saddle, nitto njs stem, araya aero tubular 24" front wheel, etc) all in all it was a great deal. anyway, I'm considering paying someone to braze some track ends on as a replacement for the old horizontal dropouts. I know this type of bike is no longer uci legal, but is it legal for usa cycling and smaller types of events? Hopefully somebody out there has an answer. this bike would make a really fun pursuit bike as it still in very good shape. otherwise i will just keep it as a conversion, make some spoke cards, get a top tube pad, and use it to impress the local hipsters.
thanks a lot!
