Subject: [CR]George Omelenchuk bikes

A friend recently sent me two pics of just a stunning and rather unusual track bike made by Michigan builder George Omelenchuk. There is very little about him in the archives. Apparently there was a Speed Skater, Jeanne Omelenchuck that was related, (spouse). Have I heard of her racing bikes also? He must not have built many bikes or his name would be part of our basic vocabulary, judging from the beauty of the bike in my pics. I think Ted Ernst once referred to some unusual wheels that Omelenchuck made also. Can anyone shed more light on this builder?
