Show your Vintage Track Bikes

I didn't see a Track bike thread, sorry in advance if I missed it. Anyway, I have the Classic Vintage track bike bug and would like to see old track bikes. Here are two I currently have in project stage. Let's see those one Speeds.

Early 1980's Olmo Competition




1972 Raleigh Professional

Lovely bikes!

Here is another track bike made in 1972, the frame set original belonged to two times Dutch national Pursuit champion (1968&1970) Leo Duyndam and was made by an Amsterdam based shop called Presto (with famous builders like Peter Serier and Jan Legrand):





And here is my (probably 1974) Gazelle Champion Mondial track bike. The first pic show my first build up, the second picture shows the current state with Cinelli parts:

Here's my early 60's Legnano. I really wish the nearest velodrome wasn't 150 miles away.

Beautiful bicycles!

I don't personally own a track bicycle, but several friends still race here at our Velodrome.

One of them has a wide selection of vintage track bikes.

My favorite is a De Rosa Pista that he bought in Berlin.

Makes me wish my knees could still handle the track abuse/wear and tear.

1989 Serotta Track. Everyone always comments how massive it is; it is a 62.



Yes, I am slightly above average height.

There's a fellow here locally in the Kansas City area who collects track bikes from the 20's, 30's, and 40's - his house is packed with them: dozens and dozens if I had to venture a guess. He collects but doesn't ride - and some of the bikes he has are really very beautiful. At some point I'd like to talk him into allowing me to photograph a few of them to share here.

They're wrong. That's a normal-sized bike.


Some great-looking track irons here, folks. Keep 'em coming.

1981 Marinoni, columbus SP, 62cm.



It has show bar/stem (cinelli steel pista) and riding bar/stem (cinelli alloy pista/criterium), neither get used these days. The rest is record track except the cranks (modified strada), though I picked up a set of 172.5 cranks that say strada but have been milled to pista and look factory, they're even slightly counter sunk for the chain-ring bolts.

^ thanks, well I guess I will just type in my image code ([img]xxx.jpg[/img]) instead of using the new and "improved" Bf uploader from now on.
I'll find the middle two and repost.

There is some really gorgeous stuff on this thread. I worry these are uncommon enough so that we won't have this eye candy thread much longer, but I want to let you guys know I'm enjoying this thread. Esp. the Marinoni and Vittorio. Beautiful, understated bikes.

Aside to biking shearer: I know, but people get upset when they realize how short they are.
