Giro track bike

I'm through with worrying about my knee and whether I can run this weekend, so for now it's back to bikes. Here's a nice old Giro. Although Giros are made in Fukuoka you still see a few on the streets of Tokyo - but usually they're going too fast for me to take a picture.

This one has a WAYYYYY old rear hub - an ancient (1980?) Dura-Ace double sided, keirin width hub. The bars are steel Nittos, the stem also Nitto. The seat and seatpost really out to be scrapped. Are the forks original? I'm thinking they aren't - maybe just put on so he doesn't have to drill his track forks.
