Post 2 – Beautiful FGG finds

For a little while now I’ve been noting the bikes that really stick out in my mind when I browse FGG. I try to stay away from super fancy pursuit frames or Pistas with absurd upgrades and focus on a combination of aesthetics and unique\interesting buildups. They are in no particular order.

Schwinn LeTour winter beater buildup

Geoffrey Butler Track Bike

meo trackbike – handbuilt by ‘Meo’ in zurich

1976 Schwinn Paramount short-couple frame

Richard Moon

custom rigid MTB frame fixed

Colnago Super Pantografata 1973

1966 Pogliaghi Stayer Bike from vienna

Tommasini Prestige – campy buildup

folding bike, hand laced wheels

And my personal favorite track frame I’ve come across:
Peugeot track frame from the 60s
