1956 OLYMPIC TRACK BIKE







Neil Ritchie's 1956 Olympic track bike
This bike was made and given to Neil Ritchie especially to take to the 1956 Melbourne Olympic games by Slater Hayes, who also made one for Don Eagle ( this bike unfortunately has been thrown out).

The bike features hand done/stencil lettering on the down tube which looks real cool.
