I'm pretty certain that Moto produced a track version of the Team Champion. Unfortunately I don't have a picture; more unfortunate, I don't have the bike. If John E is right about the tubing being plain guage carbon, the bike in question is not a TC.

More generally, would anyone have made a legit. track frame from plain guage carbon? We need some pics, pls.
