A quick check of my fanciful "Lightweight Cycle Catalogs Volume 1" as published by the JPMPF yields the Paris "Path Model" which is described as "designed to meet the needs of the real trackman ... " (as well as "The Carlton Road Track" which doesn't have a stated purpose but is available with "Track or Road rear ends as required.")
