More Info:
This frame was all bent out of shape when I got it and there's a little dent in the top tube. It's pretty straight now and it rides great. The geometry is weird for a track frame, and I didn't like it much until I put the mustache bars on (yes, they're upside down). The paint is nice and thick and it makes a great all weather/cruiser bike.

Very nice build mate! What spindle length (mm) do you have on your Phil Wood BB?
I heard the Nuovo Record cranks had a different taper and require JIS taper rather then ISO? I have 1979 Nuovo Record cranks and it's seriously doing my head in trying to find the right fit!

thanks! the bb is a 109mm jis taper setup. took me a while to get that figured out too. i have a 111mm jis phil wood bb on a different bike with the same cranks and that works fine as well. the phil wood bb is adjustable so it's easy to get the chainline straight.

Ugh! Me too... It bugs me all the time. The thing is - this is my skidding bike. All my other bikes have real nice tires so I don't like to skid on them. But I don't really like the feel of heavier tires (the kind you can skid the shit out of), so the compromise is a pro race 3 on the front. And lastly, I really like the whitewalls on this bikeā€¦ so.... I'm stuck like this! Haha.

Oh man this is way too nice. How'd you straighten the frame out? And will it ever come up for sale/trade?

started out with a 2x4 which got it close, but ended up going to a guy that had the proper tools. and by that i mean he had a 2x4 as well, but he had measuring tools to let him know when he'd gotten it right.

as for selling, i'd been thinking about getting rid of it for awhile now and almost did last summer. that fell through and it sat in the corner for awhile before i put it back together again and now i'm kinda liking it. now i'm not sure i want to get rid of it. if i decide to, i'll let you know.
