Well this is a bit of a mystery... I have Pogliaghi #9606, a 57cm red track frame built for the Canadian national team, sitting in my possession. Is your bike also stamped #9606, or was that a typo? Forgive the poorly lit photos...

(I obviously have an interest in the correct parts as well... ;)

********************

serial number stamps on Pogliaghis were often mis-hit, or poorly hit. I've seen more than a few with that problem.

Is it not the case that Campagnolo track cranks were uniformly 151BCD right through the 70s?
