Hi this is my first post, I have been on the road for 30 years or so and started my fix with an ex PMG postie special upgrading to track and crit bikes. But I do miss the shear weight and mass of a PMG at speed…
I picked up this super light steel frame last weekend from a great old guy on the Gold Coast (Jack), it came with some nice old campag super record wheels and front brake, durace crank, Zeus seat post and Shimano 600 headset.
I’m not sure what or if any of it is original. The frame has been repainted and clearly says Hoffy on the BB but no other id or serial number. My guess is 531 but it seems lighter than my Jim Bundy in 531.
In one of the threads on this site on a great story of a MS 5 Star '63 track bike, I noticed the lugging is nearly identical. See below for a comparison picture with the 5 star frame. Any thoughts?
