(info from user CrankyCarbon):

"The builder was a small builder located in Clawson, Michigan. Mr. Jim Howell. I believe Crawford was his Dad's middle name. He worked and retired from Chrysler where he also worked with Pino Morroni who also worked at Chrysler (originally both from AMC). He built specialty bikes including tandems and also dabbled in Titanium and super light weight stuff. He also built spokes for specialty applications. His business was run out of his basement, he had the goods down there.

I bought his main road bike, an ALAN that was 17lbs with full OMAS Ti stuff, etc. He loved cycling both as a past-time, hobby & business. He retired from Chrysler and his bike business in 1997 and moved to Florida with his wife.

He built that Crawford track bike that you now have for me when he sponsored my racing. Beautiful multilayered white and metallic white paint with a clear coat metallic. It was painted by John Mikesell of GreyStreet Bicycles, more known as one of the co-founders of NukeProof, also of Clawson, Michigan."

If you ever want to sell her back to me .. I would love to have her back. I see you made some changes to her.
Glad she's still rolling. I need some pictures, the only one I have are in my head.

Wow I just saw this comment?

Wow I just saw this comment? I purchased the bike as a frame set so I had to build it. It already had a Suntour Superbe headset so I tried to make it all Suntour Superbe.

What were the original components you had on it? More specifically, what size seatpost should it take?

Sorry for the late reply. I

Sorry for the late reply.
I was sponsored by Suntour in the early days, and that bike was a full Suntour Superbe Pro setup. I believe the seatpost was the standard 27.2 - though I may be wrong.

When I sold the frame I sold it with my Campy crank/wheels and swapped the SSP to my TSD Guerciotti https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/14801845422/in/album-72157646099392315/

She is resting for the camera at the moment ahaha.

I plan to upload someday. You should stay with the Regal, you will love it someday if you do. I love mine. You just gotta get the angle and seatpost height perfect and your set. Real cozy ride for me with the saddle slammed.

Back to your frame Geometry, yes it is tight and i especially like the seat stays ;-)
