https://www.ebay.com/itm/GT-Olympic-Track-Pursuit-Frame-61cm-56cm-Fixed-Gear-Time-Trial-Pista-Yamaguchi/263830727849 FOR SALE!! Finally got one... Picked it up at a swap meet from an older hippy. Apparently it was built for the US Olympic team under Yamaguchi (maybe?) to test out new geometries as well as get the riders prepared for GT's Super Bikes.

Definitely one of the raddest frames I've ever seen, and the build does it justice. Good job, also I wanna say the risers and Sugino CHCD build is insane

Without doubt, one of my favourite builds of all. It's got everything, triple triangles, 24 inches... just needs risers again.

Ha cheers man, yeah I love the corima, when I found it, it had been sat in a shed for more than 10 years, was in a sorry state with shitty miche gear and a quill adapter. People on here look at it and think I've perverted a classic, I reckon I rescued it!

SillyGooseCookie says:

Oh man, I gotta hear the whole story on how you found the Corima! If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for it? And I think some people really need to chill out, bikes are meant to be enjoyed and ridden. I personally think it looks totally badass with the risers.

It was on eBay, collection only from some back water town in Yorkshire, took 3 trains to get there and pick it up. Think I won the auction for the full bike for about £380? I've got the photos from the eBay ad saved on my laptop keep meaning to post them on here. Exactly the point, it's a fun bike to ride to the pub on a sunny day, or on a cruise. I have LA84s and an ergostem as well, but it's like a 62cm TT I think so pretty long!

That's crazy cheap! if for some reason you'd want to sell or trade it ever, lemme know!

To be honest plan is to slowly build it up into a period correct-ish build with lots of Corima and French parts, keep it with risers as a pub bike, then if I ever need cash to shift it on ebay to some rich collector.

Malaysian: You need a Mavic Starfish on that Corima.

Also this GT made me want to build up my Daccordi instead of trading it.

HHSB mode with the black LA's and the rolls - that's hella bauss! Not feeling the starfishes, looks out of place and doesn't meld good enough with the rest of the build. Would fuck with the Campy BMX cranks though.

SillyGooseCookie says:

thanks! I'm kinda diggin the starfishes so far, and they would've been original to the bike. Well, that or DA 7600 depending on the year it was being ridden. The BMX's are fun cranks, but I've been considering selling them since right now they're just sitting around.
