I'm selling my 80's Guerciotti track frameset. It's had a tasteful(less?) late 80's/early 90's neon speckled re-splatter which has a few chips and scratches in it but is overall a very durable paintjob. The actual color is a bit lighter than the pics and not so yellow, more of an off-white.
Judging from the paint spray inside the tubes, the frame was originally a dark pink or red. I'd say similiar to this one.
Columbus decal says SL but I can only find Guerciotti Pista frames made from Columbus PL or PS (pista light / pista special tubing). The steerer has the internal helical ribbing common to the majority of Columbus frames.
Chrome is in fair condition. The chainstay and Campagnolo ends are beautiful. The pantographing on the forks is showing deterioration and a bit of surface rust and there is a flake near the Columbus sticker on the left fork blade.
It has pantographed forkcrown, seatstay caps, seatstay bridge and a star cutout on the BB shell.
It's marked 55 on both steerer and BB, it measures 55cm c-to-c. BB and steerer threading pitch is Italian. Guerciotti were known to make very steep angles so I wouldn't be suprised if this has a 76 degree headtube and 75 degree seattube. The shape of the chainstays designate it as a model not for export, meaning it was probably built to be raced by an Italian at the Vigorelli velodrome in Milano.
I really like this frame but just don't ride it enough and will probably never be on the track again.
Also a brand new set of Halo Aerotrack wheels, black hubs (fixed/free) and spokes/nipples with day-glo yellow rims. 32 spokes laced 3x rear and radial front.
Please collection from Hackney or arranged central London meeting. I don't want to post either of these.
If only for a braking surface i'd be well up for those!
Damn that's pretty!
damn you'r short legs mike, btw anyone who thinks it looks good, it has to be seen in the real, it's amazing
I'm offering £200 for f&f.
too big for you ehren
What? I ride a 56cm frame currently. Or have I missed something?
nice paintjob that!
fuck thats nice.
Mike: Any chance of a picture with wheels on it?
And the ST measurement C-T-T and the measurement from the centre of the fork dropout to the center of the BB?
I'm WELL interested!
if only money grew on trees.

Thanks all for the interest. The frame is pending an offer but if it falls through it goes to the next person in the queue.
Wheels are still available.

Still available: Halo Aerotrack wheels, black hubs (fixed/free) and spokes/nipples with day-glo yellow rims. 32 spokes laced 3x rear and radial front.
Hate to resurrect, but does anyone know where this frame went? Would love to see if I could get hold of it... pretty much my dream frame....
