Help Me Identify This Frame

Postby AdamHamzah on Mon 22nd Jun 8:02pm

So I have this old track bike which I'm trying to identify so I can sell it.
I'm pretty sure it's New Zealand made.
There's two frame markings: 5255 on the bb shell and 73 on the seat tube seat clamp.

It was ridden in Christchurch, New Zealand its whole life so I'd imagine it'd be made by New Zealand frame manufacturer.

Pics are below.

The person I would ask about this is Peter-James in Chch (can't remember his last name) who built his own frames and would know others building frames about the same time.

He worked for Marleens until maybe 5-10 years ago.

Brian Phillips would be another one worth asking, he was building frames at the same time.
could be worth asking Craig Sharratt as well
