Vintage Campagnolo Record Pista and modern sealed bearing Campagnolo

Brooks Swallow black and Peugeot 24mm weird size seat post

MKS sylvan & KMS silver 1/8" (I need to get one that's actually chrome)

49 x 18, but I think I'll up it to a 16t cog.

This is an old East German track frame. I have tried to use parts that make sense with a 1960 track frame. I have a pair of Campagnolo track hubs from way back that I hope to lace up to some old school rims for this eventually.

Campagnolo wheels definitly

Campagnolo wheels definitly make sense on that frame. Even the socialist sports managers from East Germany spent a lot of money for western equipment to get these shiny olympic gold medals...near my place is still the former institute where a lot of the famous DDR sports gear was designed and built like spacy 80's track frames. Diamant track bike in NYC...i would have gettin' crazy if i saw it when i was over there!
Anyway, this bike looks awesome in its original classic Diamant color! Beautiful built!

Beautiful! Where did you

Beautiful! Where did you find that 24mm seat post???

24mm seatpost

I got it from somebody in Canada who listed it on craigslist. I guess it came from a Peugeot.

Nice Bike Man

Germans make better cars than bikes but this is really clean...
