Hello All,

I'm building an vintage track bike (currently unknown frame builder, maybe a Carlton or Hillman viewtopic.php?f=12&t=244539) and would like some period-ish components to complete the build. The frame dates from 60'-70's. It will be repainted and correct details added.

I am looking for a vintage TA or stronglight chainset...... but open to suggestions. Any early square taper offers would be welcome.
Happy for a double road, i can remove the inner ring.

second up, the most important part of a bike: wheels! Track fixed 700c wheel set if you please. Again i am open to offers, these don't have to be of period, but i'm not really after deep V's or anything too flashy.

at this point of the build i am still really open. I have yet to acquire any parts and am totally open to suggestions and advice.

Thanks,
L

hello Tony have a look at this thread: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=244539

we have almost ruled out a carlton, but this has opened up the world of frame builders and put a huge question mark over who built it.
