Vintage Track Bike (maybe)

I have had this bike for a few years. Got it out of one of my storage lockers I bought. Trying to figure a make on it. I have been told late 60's early 70's but no one has any idea of the make. The serial number is "1". Im not a bike go so forgive my lack of knowledge. Thanks for any help you can give.

it is not a track bike. It is a road bike. A track bike would not have shifters or some of the other features.

Welcome to the forums [MENTION=406785]rzr4444[/MENTION]

I agree it isn't a track bike but I think it might be a Cyclocross bike judging from the cantilever brakes. The dropouts, the things where the rear wheel goes and the cables routed under the bottom bracket shell (BB), that is where the crank arms are attached to the frame, make this look like it may be from the '80s rather than the '60/70s.

Can we get some better pics and more information? What country is the bike in? What does the decal on the top tube say? Pramopro? What brand are the components?

Bikes: No-name LH drive track. Also ride an Exxon Graftek, a Masi, a Trek R200 or a RR Boneshaker for fun!

Looks like a JPR seat post (part of a French consortium that also included Huret).
It will be interesting to see if the OP will post any good drivetrain-side photos.

Not sure of the make but not track or older 60'-70's. This is a mid to late 80's cyclecross bike my guess would be French built. In current rough condition not a lot of value.

Then Bike is in the USA. Arizona to be exact. IT has a Mavic sticker on the forks, A Rolf Sticker and a primopro sticker. Other than that No markings. Again the only information anywhere is a "1" The rear gear is Campagnolo and the handle bars are Cinelli. Thanks for the help, again sorry for mylack of knowledge of bike terms. What is the "running gear" you want a picture of?

That is exactly what we want pictures of. The RUNNING GEAR on the OTHER SIDE of the bike (also called the drive train).

Its BTD (beat to death) and has been repainted multiple times. As it sits maybe $50 but only because there's someone out there who may to build it into a cyclocross bike.

$50...if they've been smoking
