1977 Plum Vainqueur ...

I sold this to a guy in the U.K. over 10 years ago and regretted it. I've been looking for the bike ever since and still no luck.

Quite a bit earlier I think?

Thanks to all of you who have posted all the beautiful bikes in this thread.

Disclaimers
Not a real track bike: built by Nagasawa as a "practise" bike or road trainer.
Not vintage: sold by Yellow Jersey in about 2005.

I bought this bike from @Vonruden a few months ago, made a few minor changes, and have been riding it quite a lot. This is my first ever fixed gear bike and I'm having a blast with it. 46/18 gearing allows me to ride the local rolling hills and gives me as much workout on a thirty mile ride as I get on my geared bikes on longer rides with steeper hills.

My newly refinished road fixed gear.

Amateur built in the '70s from Columbus SL. This bike was very likely designed around super narrow tubulars and the original fork will not clear a 700c x 23mm even on narrow rims (and certainly not on these 18mm internal H Plus Son TB14!) so the fork that's on it is from a 1985 Schwinn Tempo. I've ridden it with this fork before and it behaves quite nicely. Tempo fork ATC is about 10mm longer so it does raise the front end up a bit but it's not terribly noticeable. Kind of nice that it relaxes the geometry more in to road bike territory.

There's good amount of clearance for these 700c x 28mm Michelins which blew up to around 30mm, but I'll probably get some tanwall 23mm or 25mm just to allow me to use a little more of the track end if I want to.

I did have the original fork refinished to match, so maybe someday I'll build a set of track tubular wheels. The original fork will clear a 650b x 32mm with room to spare, though ... build options abound!
