Left-hand crank

Post by George » 15 May 2014 12:06

In recent months, I've been doing some comprehensive bike fleet maintenance/sprucing up. A spin-off of that is that I now how a complete bike of spare/reject parts.

... all except a left-hand crank. (Actually, I have couple of those too, but not the right type.)

Has anyone got a square-taper 170mm Campag-pattern left-hand crank, from the post-dead-straight era (if you get what I mean by that last bit)?

Although I don't really need another bike at all, it's too tempting to put all the bits of junk together, but spending good money on a new crank to go with the junk seems a bit too daft even for me.

Chris, in an ideal world I'd like one like the one pictured below, but anything broadly similar will do. I have an ancient Stronglight, but it is from the era when spindles were longer and cranks didn't bend out. Consequently, it almost brushes the frame.

Finally put all the old tat on my shelves, plus Chris's left-hand crank, together:
