Fastab Track Bike?

I recently came in possession of a Fastab track bike I believe to be from the 70's. It's super light, just under 18 pounds, steel frame, TA cranks, Fiamme stem, Ruban Bleu tubulars. Of course looking for a price but also any new information would certainly be appreciated!

The only info I've been able to find on Fastab was here in these forums. Essentially Fastab was a custom frame and bicycle company run by a man named Tom Boyden in Garland Texas in the 70's.

You obviously found my previous post on Fastab. Given the fact that you could purchase Fastabs in a semi-finished state with the filing, painting and decal application being performed by the owner, the finish workmanship and consequent value could be all over the map.

18 lbs. is not that light for a track bike, by the appearance of the fork blades it is probably a Sprint bike with heavier tubing, at least the forks. My similar sized track bike for the period is 18lbs+/- depending on the wheels but it has steel bar and stem, heavier cranks and Columbus PS tubing.
