Vincent Dominguez was also selling this Stan Johnson made track bike at the sale for $800. The build is mostly Dura Ace (track cranks, headset, brakes, post) with Superbe Pro hubs.

Not knowing anything about Stan Johnson, I googled it and came up with this from a forum:

Back in the late ’80s and early ’90s I used to co-own and -operate a bicycle repair shop in Minneapolis and ours was the Minnesota connection for Stan Johnson. Originally, he built frames in Oxnard, California. Sometime around 1990 or 1991 (I don’t remember exactly when) he moved to Bozeman, Montana and set up shop there. I heard he stopped building frames a few years ago (5-10), but I may be mistaken.

Stan Johnson used Tru Temper tubing and Henry James frame findings extensively and all his frames were painted by Joe Bell in San Diego, California. All the frames sold through our shop were meticulously made by him and always matched the specifications we provided and every customer was happy(!). I’m not sure of the exact number we sold (around 10 over four years), but there are still four from that time period on the road around the Twin Cities, that I know about.

If you’re in the market, I can point you in the right direction.
