You would think so, but the count down is on to get my bike finished for the 'hard day in January ride' and i still haven't found a suitable set.
The originals were damaged after I went over a pot hole and squared off both the front and rear rim.
You could borrow my set of fiammes if you get desperate, although I'm in a similar situation to you now r.e the Hard Day in January ride. Just bought a jrj track frame (scruffy and with 80s Bob Jackson decals) of ebay, so will swap the wheels, seat etc over from my Pearson. (which may be going to a friend as his frame snapped). However, this leaves me without a built up bike for the ride, so I will need a suitable late 50s/early stem to fit some 70s Cinelli Campione del Mondo bars I have that will get used for now, and a suitable chains. I have some TA pista cranks but would need a 112mm axle for these, or a set of Stronglight 49d Cranks that should fit the TA 344 axle I have (I think)
So, if anyone has either of these-a 112mm axle (or even better a very rare TA 314 axle) or a set of Stronglight 49D cranks going, I could do with them quick smart, to be ready for the Hard Day ride! Thanks all.
thanks for the offer on the wheels however i have some short term options as a last resort.
i gave up looking for the elusive 314 axle and changed to a cottered Stronglight competition cranks, so i have a set of 49d cranks knocking around and a couple of stems that maybe of some use.
i say set of 49d cranks however they are not a set, one has a bevelled edge so i suspect it is a later model but it would get you going.
