Hopefully this bute will be winging its way to me soon for a summer project :D

Olympic track frame circa 1970's I 'm lead to believe - any one have knowledge otherwise please let me know.

Will be built up as a road going fixie a la Pompino :D

Only downside is that the seatpost is stuck - any ideas to free it up would be much appreicated :D :D

Any ho more picks when built up

Mark

soak the seatpost with plus gas.

sometimes a whack on the top can help free them off.
