Cool frames?

(closed)
What are some rare older track frames? I'd prefer aluminum but steel is real so I could care less. Love my GTB, want something else (in addition).

GT pulse and GTB
Cannondale track
KHS Aero track - a steel version with the curved seat post and an aluminum version with pursuit geo

Anything custom made is always cool since its one off.

I know I am missing a ton. The coolest bikes are the ones that are ridden.

Currently leaning towards a KHS aerotrack, just want to find some more hidden gems. Need a frame I'll stop to look at whenever I walk past it in my basement. Wish Bianchi had more older/unique track frames.

Older lugged steel frames made by Italians that you can't lookup on the Internet. Duh.

If this were a scantron test I would fill in the " I strongly agree" bubble regarding the above pOst. Just get some florescent Raybans. There's your "cool frames" right there.

3 car crashes? still no brake?

I find that in a colder climate steel frames are cooler. it seems like they just always feeler cooler than aluminum frames even though it's the same temp outside. I'm guessing that the paint also plays a pretty strong role in how cool the frame is and how it holds or reflects temperature.
