Campy used to make parts for juvenile racing bikes (not BMX). They had a crank that that was called the Baby Sport or Sport Baby. It looked like an aluminum 3 pin Sport with short arms. The chainring was small; maybe 36 teeth. About 20 years ago I saw a Cinelli with one of these and 18" sewups. I've also seen a Gitane track bike with 18 inch sewups, but it had French parts. These bike were built of lightweight tubing and good parts, just like a real racing bike except they were small.
