Martyn’s track iron

Posted on

The 23" frame/forks feature original chrome & graphics with Campagnolo dropouts, wrapover seat cluster with allen head fastening and a typical twin plate fork crown drilled with provision for a front brake. 39" wheelbase, 16" chainstays, 11" b/brkt height.

Components include Campy b/brkt axle & cups, Stronglight 49D short 165mm track cranks, TA 59t chainring, Lyotard Berthet platform pedals, Christophe Special toe clips with Alfredo Binda straps, Ideale Competition TD90 saddle with duralumin alloy undercaraige, I believe the bars (alloy) are Bailey track drops and the dropped extension (steel) is Reynolds 531 but make unknown. The 700c sprint wheels are ex Tony Doyle feturing Campy Record hubs, Mavic Argentino rims, chrome db spokes tied & soldered, schwalbe Stelvio dual compound tubs. Wheels due to be replaced with period 'Nisi' rims and more suitable gearing also on the list of jobs.

Rides well, ultra responsive and allthough not a concours example it is very original and certainly presentable.Hope you enjoy and any further information on this treasured machine would be gladly appreciated.

Kind regards

If any of you can throw any light on this Track Iron for Martyn I will only to happy to pass it on .
