This is a good example of a solid mini track bike. Will get a small

person in the correct position, as opposed to a small frame on bigger

wheels. I believe it was made in the 60's. Paint is ok, decals ok. The

only drawback is the permanent chainring on the cottered crankset.

However, changing chainrings is not usually necessary with the little

kids that might ride this bike as I have seen them turning well over

150rpm w/ no problem. For small adults this bike would probably work as

is too as the gearing seems ok to go same speed and rideable cadence as

I was on my 700c w/ 42x16 when we took it on a fixed ride on the road

over hills etc. Stories are that this bike was ridden in multiple

National track championships. I have lost the history sheet that came w/ the

bike... Now my son has grown too much to ride it and it is

time to pass it on.

It is ready to ride. $575.00
