I was able to purchase this bike from a collector. I know it doesn't have any brakes, so I feel a bit ripped off. Could it still enter for the rBOTM please? :D

Hardly surprising it hasn't got brakes seeing as how it is a pure track bike. Mind you, that doesn't seem to bother the trendy 'fixie' fraternity!

Beautiful machine, I'm envious!

I already voted as did many other people. I doubt whether you want to compete in this months rBOTM, as it could very be some to many of those people would have voted for you otherwise.

Very nice bike! :)

Btw I do recall a Chris Chance pista ebay auction from about 5yrs ago. It went for a little over 3k dollars if I recall correctly. I saved the pics of that one.

Actually it looks quite a lot like yours.

I recall a very lush purplish 3Rensho track (pursuit possibly) was auctioned by the same seller at the same time. Winning bidder was a certain 'choy.....' from UK. About the same price tag.
