i got the lugs, tubes, and bb shell from nova cycles. They were having a special a few months ago. My boss gave me the track ends about a year ago. He said, "Here, now you can build a track bike." They sat in my toolbox for a long while and I finally decided to just go for it.

I made my own jig from fiberboard and steel tubing and axles. I had to cold work all of the lugs, so i machined dies to bend them from road geometry to track geometry, and then hammer them back flush.

As far as brooks saddles go, they're really more affordable than high end racing saddles, and they're really easy to customize. Mine is just a B17 that I got used and then cut down.
