I hope to own a racer some day, but in the mean time I'm working on this 1920s clone. A Caber suggest that I box pinstripe it and I like that suggestion. Any suggestions on the color I should paint it? For my complete blog, see my post under Project Rides. Thanks, JimRoy.

1940's Motorpacing Stayer bike "Bismire" from Australia. As far as I know it is the only Bismire Stayer ever made and raced by Allan Dutton. It didn't have a wheel set on it when I got it so I put the Bacon Slicers on it.

Here's a project Racycle Pacemaker I have. They aren't classified or intended as true "Racing Bicycles" , but they sure have that appearance anyway!
I'll probably build it as a stripped down, racing type bicycle rather than an original appearance with that heavy sprung seat and fenders, upright bars, etc. I do have a pair of the larger, deeper Kelly bars for it and the larger cog for the rear hub.

This 1 of 1 racing tandem was built by Doc Morten for the 1932 Canadian Olympic Cycling Team, but they failed to qualify in this event so it was never used. It belongs to a fellow collector in Toronto. That's Doc Morten at the toc when he himself was a racer.

I have a Doc Morten frame for which I'm searching for CCM Flyer or BSA track components if anyone has them "lying around". I have a Major Taylor stem for it but need period correct bars.

old racing track bikes

Here's some of my old bikes. Only about 15 or so in the picture. The other 45 bikes were hanging or just on the other side of the room and I never
took a picture of them. Been selling most of them but still collecting early ones now. Early to me is about 1890's. Anything after 1920 becomes old now!
I had over 100 total - TRACK RACING ONLY and nothing else. I may have posted in the past but here's some pics again.

Info and ideas/suggestions appreciated, I thought it may be French?

Also another ABC track bicycle, currently being restored (very lovingly) by my good friend Jaume.....

Can't wait to see what else they've discovered later in the year.
