Restoration project! I rescued this beauty from the trashman at my local shop. Nothing wrong with it, just needs a little love.
And it's Tomo's size!

It's an 80's Ravanello track frame. Apparently "ravanello" is the italian word for Japanese radish, daikon.

A little healthy nationalism.

Apparently it belonged to a pro-keirin racer. It was his race bike as a junior.

It's pretty interesting. All aero-shaped tubing, filet brazed construction. Avant garde for its time.

Even the bottom bracket shell is teardrop-shaped!
