track bike question

Firstly does anyone know the seller of this bike in Edinburgh as his email
address is being rejected by the sportscotland.org.uk mailserver. I have
truncated the Ebay URL as it is massive.

I was wondering as the owner said it should fit someone of approx 5.6' to
6.0' this is a fairly large range, and would it be possible to change the
front forks to fit a 700c wheel and still maintain a respectable geometry
for the track

cheers

That's not a good sign.

This can be done with many bikes, with enough seat post and stem.
It's not very satisfactory, though.
