Just finishing off this track bike resto. Frame/fork is a 'McBain' in 531 with drilled campy ends; thought to have been built by Aussie builder Hillman.

Started out in rather horrid street fixie spec with a mish mash of modern and original parts;

After new powdercoat, decals (for my local shop), some NOS bits and a bunch of new Nitto/MKS gear...

Very clean and tidy - definitely an improvement on its previous incarnation... :)

Very classy.
Way better than the earlier hipster-fixie setup.
