My first pickup of the year - Marinoni Special Track

Scored this beauty on Craigslist two towns away and it's exactly my size. Seller was the original owner and is relocating to warm weather, he used to race at T-town and took good care.

Man, it's raining track bikes around here. Great!

happy to hear that it fits you.

Can't wait till the salt is off the road so I can bring my track bike out.

The simplicity of track bikes... This looks great and Dura-Ace 7600 hubs are really the best imho!

Thanks, love the Dura Ace cranks, however the chain ring is a Campy...best of both worlds I guess.

"Dura-Ace" writing on the crank arm is laser printed. However it wears off really quickly if cranks are getting ridden. ;/ That's one of the reasons I went for FC-7400 cranks. The other was I couldn't afford track cranks anyways Are those NJS approved?

Sweet score! There's a Marinoni SLX frame with the same color scheme and decals about 30 miles away. Then across the river in Sarnia Canada there's a shop with a brand new Marinoni built up with Campag Veloce. If you don't mind me asking...what's the killer price you scored this for?

Anybody know the deal with the different font "M" pantoed on the lug? I've seen a couple like that but mine are the same font as the one on the fork crown.

Not unusual at all for an active track bike to swap the rings out frequently depending on event or conditions ---- guy probably had a canvas sack full of rings and cogs at one time for it

The stamping of the M on the fork and lugs are normal, looks good. Pepe used three main stampings, the earliest were a fleur de lys, a maple leaf and the later and current generation are the M. If you want to see nice new ones see my post: He is still at it, he tried to sell me a 60 inch frame, sp tubing, chrome fork and rear, cash for 1200$ CAN.

Vonruden, by the way, it's possible your frame was repainted. This type of Columbus decal is typical of the one Pepe uses when repainting a frame. You can contact them with the serial number and they will tell you all about your bike. httpCycles Marinoni://www.marinoni.qc.ca/

I know jack and squat about track bikes, but even a clod like me can see the beauty in this bike.

Nice, looks about my size too, please let me know if you ever decide to sell.

The first digit in the serial number will tell you the year within the 1990s (e.g. a 4xxxx would indicate 1994 build date). i say 1990s because the mitered seat stay treatment as opposed to caps which he started doing around 1990. It the first digit is an 8 or 9 it could be a 1988 or 1989 but I quess it is 1990-1995.

Here is mine 1981. It has the maple leafs which I think is awesome. I should get it resprayed but I want to get proper retro decals which Marinoni does not have, unless things have changes in the last 8 years. If you look closely you can see the ovalized SP tubing which makes the clearance look tighter. I did get some modern decals from them and cut away the shapey things to make it look more old school. Mine was resprayed by someone in Michigan I think but they layed it on too thick and it is brittle.

You see it with the riding controls. For show I put on the cinelli track steel
