Hi Garret, The 151 Record track cranks continued until the introduction of SR in about 1974, and were offered after that for quite awhile, as there were large stocks on hand at all the distributors. I think "no Record" hubs were made at least until 1965, have you checked yours for dates?

The cross section of the arms can vary, the Pista cranks sometimes have the older, squarer profile while the Strada arms have a more beveled corner.

It's very likely someone built their "new" Medici frame with parts they had on hand, so that may explain older parts on a newer frame. Happens a lot...or
did.
