Fausto Rode a Conversion?



I'm not the biggest fan of road bike conversions, real track bikes and all that, but what the hell? See the pic (click to make it bigger), Fausto Coppi, The King of Kings, rode a Biachi road bike conversion on the the boards... ?!

if he's going for an hour record or the like, perhaps it's also more efficient to use a converted road bike than a traditional track bike (the latter being designed primarily for sprinting but who stiffness can sap some energy over the longhaul).
