<< This bike intrigues me in that it has some features that don't quite make?

sense to me.?

It is advertised as a track frame but It appears to have vertical dropouts?

in the rear,?

There are cable guides under the bottom bracket, and water bottle braze ons.?? >>

Someone outed this bike frame a little while ago and it caused me to think about the possible scenarios that might lead to such an oddity... My considered wild ass guess is that it was a track bike, later "converted to a Time Trial hybrid by adding rear Campy vertical drop outs, cable guides and such. Not sure how they got around the brake situation... Frequently just a front brake was used on such machines, and possibly a different fork was installed for TT use.?

<<

Lug treatment appears to be much less refined than on other Pogs pictured on the CR website. >>

Not sure about the lugs but they sure look like cast (& not stamped) to my eye, with a lot of material in the lug body, shape, etc. I think that implies the original manufacturing date is back in the 60s...

The brake bridge is not drilled (and is a different shape than my later?

pog track frame has).?

Lug treatment appears to be much less refined than on other?

Pogs pictured on the CR website.?

I've also never seen a Pog (although I haven't seen all that many)?

with "Pogliaghi Italcours" stamped into the headtube.?

What is this? was this an early Pog spec'd somewhat similiar?

to a british path racer?? ?
