Subject: [CR] FS: australian track frame/fork, paconi perhaps...

i've had this track frame for a few years. ever since i got a good all around bike built this thing hasn't been ridden much. mostly ridden on training rides, the track is too far to make it to regularly.

size is ~58cm square, maybe 57.5cm square. english threaded. 26.8 seatpost required. all tubes in BB are pinned. finish work on fork tips and track ends is nice, i believe they are suntour. a single hole is drilled in most of the lugs and the sockets for the chainstays...has a nice double plate fork crown with round blades.

front center is short (has ample toe overlap with 170mm cranks), chainstays are average for a track bike. it rides really straight even at low speeds, no handed at a very low cadence is no problem.

i was told "it was built by McDonald, Paconi's other builder." that's all i know except that it's a nice frame.

i'll need around $550 shipped in continental US for frame and fork with an almost new tange Levin Headset (the one that looks very similar to a Super Record headset).

pretty much only selling to finance repair to an old musical instrument and because i don't ride it much.

once the frame is gone i'll probably be selling most of the parts, i'd rather not deal with ebay so i'm giving you guys a shot.
