More Info:
The Trexlertown Serottas were made by Ben Serotta during the mid to late 80's and served as the rental bikes at T-town until they were sold at swaps sometime during 2011 and replaced with Fujis. I've done a ton of research and from what I can tell there are a few distinguishing features of what is probably the only "volume" production track frame Serotta manufactured. Please chime in with corrections if anyone notices any inaccuracies: 1. There were at least 30 of these bicycles made 2. All featured the metallic maroon paint and yellow decal with sergeant stripes - most retain their T-town fleet number on the upper seat tube 3. All were fitted with Mavic Pista groupsets 4. Forks were fitted with Campagnolo dropouts, rear dropouts are Shimano SFP 10 5. Five digit serial numbers are stamped on fork steerer, bottom bracket has no stampings 6. Columbus SL tubes 7. BSA with 120mm spacing 8. Crown race is ISO 26.4 but head tube is JIS at 30mm (requires reaming to fit King headset) 9. Seat binders are finnicky on these frames as T-town fitted most with quick release skewers - some worn out examples will require shims to adequately secure seatpost (27.2mm)

This build hits all the right spots for me. It's really similar (very similar geometry, Phil's, silver Japanese cranks with a beefy no frills chainring, RB-021, nitto 90mm stem, izumi V chain) to my track bike, but with a wound up which looks really cool.
