    So fine and the name really adds to the appeal. This bike is way before my time (I'm only 49) bit I remember there being a couple of custom builders for track frames in Queens during my youth. Of course, at the time there was track racing on the "flats" in Flushing Meadow and later on the Kissena Park velodrome.
     The fact that Dick Power was located in Sunnyside also made me wonder about the following. Was there ever indoor track racing in the Sunnyside Garden arena?
