I have a track bike of unknown origins that I am trying hard to identify. My hope is to restore it to something near its original condition, or to a condition similiar to the time in which it was made.

Here is what I know. The bike came from my uncle's garage. It is painted all silver and has no logo's or badges of anykind. The bottom bracket is stamped on the top left with "RGF" and the underside with "T559K." The rear dropouts are stamped "Brev Campagnolo." I took some pictures and sent them to Tom Kellogg. He gave the following info: Tube set: Columbus PS Crown: Cinelli FC Lugs: Cinelli bulge forged Bottom bracket: Gargette RGF

The bike came from my uncle with Campagnolo Pista components (hubs, cranks, seatpost). It has Japanese bars and a Nashbar stem now. I'm not sure what was on it originally.

You can see some pictures at the following address. http://filebox.vt.edu/users/onielsen/

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can take more pictures, take measurements, do whatever, if it would help to identify the bike.

Thank you,
