Bargain Italian track bike

Not a bad find (or deal) for this area. Needs gumwall tires like nobody’s business, though.


Viner special professional pista – $850 (Astoria)

1980s viner special professional pista bike.
Columbus Tri-tubi (SP) Steel Frame is 58 c-t seat tube and 55 c-c top tube. Frame is stucturally solid, but there is some rust pitting on the bottom bracket, rear “bridge”. Very minor. There are some paint chips and scratches. Nothing really bad though. Viner decals are in good condition – some chips here and there.
parts are mostly 80s non NJS Sugino:
Crankset is Sugino Super might 165 144 bcd, comes with 49t chain ring. New Bottom bracket
Seat post is Sugino Mighty
Tange Levin headset
Cinelli Pista handlebars and stem
Selle italia seat

Wheels are a pair of Mavic CXP Flip-flops which have never ran breaks and have no street use on them so far. Tires are 25s which is a bit tight size, but better if you ride on the street. i willl include a pair of older 23s if you would like.
Willing to trade for bike in smaller size or just a frame

Asking 850 or best offer. Will trade for smaller seat tube bike/frame.

Postscript: the bike sold on eBay for $660. Nicely bought.
