Custom anonymous frame build

So heres the story, This is my first true custom build. I bought this 61cm steel track frame off a buddy of mine who owned it for about a decade maybe more, around early 2000's for sure, anyways the frame had no badge, makers stamp, anything to identify a company only a serial number, and a gloss black pain job. When I asked my friend about the frame he told me he got it off the guy who made it. Couldn't remember his name just that it was welded in Toronto. This is why i've named it as an "anonymous frame" After having my fun with it for a little bit taking everything apart down to bare steel, I gained a little passion for buying new parts and building this bike to my comfort. After a few months of searching for and importing parts from Japan, and some help from my local bike community, I was able to piece by piece build this in the comfort of my home. There are a still a few things I am still currently waiting on, such as a new seatpost but the weather in Ontario hit a great week in February and I couldn't resist to take her out for the first time. She handled like a dream! I was bombing hills putting my full weight into the bike and it was perfect, no kinks, nothing wrong, and more silent as ever. It gave me a smile from ear to ear knowing something I put together myself felt so smooth and strong. Was a little proud of myself aha. Anyways, sorry for the rant, I saw summary and thought I should tell a story aha. Hope you like my build. I'll be uploading better photos once I can take her out more. Sticking to my beater for the rest of winter aha! Cheers!
