For those seeking a "vintage" appearance for their bike:
An acquaintance of mine some years ago bought a shiny red Singer when he was
visiting France and assembled it with 3-pin Maxy cranks to simulate the
appearance of Rene Herse arms. This guy was at the time a mechanic and
"Campy snob," and just wanted his new bike to look older and more French
than it really was!
> Hello, all!
> I asked about these Sugino chainrings recently on the list thinking that I

> They seem very hard to find, but they're certainly not the hottest items out
> there, so they're priced accordingly.
> Still, if you've got a 3-armed Sugino Maxy crank (106 BCD) on an circa 70s
> Crescent or such, and you need some new rings, these would fit the bill.
> All the rings are NOS (mint, I think, but if not, they're mighty close);
> there's one of each of the following sizes for sale:
> 56 t -- $6 (plus shipping)
> 46 t -- $6 (plus shipping)
> 42 t -- $6 (plus shipping)
> 38 t -- $6 (plus shipping)
> 34 t -- $6 (plus shipping)
> 33 t -- $6 (plus shipping)
> If you want all six chainrings, make it $34 *including* Priority Mail
> shipping . . . if you're in the US, that is!
> If you're outside the US, shipping will be higher; if you buy fewer than all
> six rings, shipping will likely be $3.95 or less via Priority Mail (or less
> if you go first class).
> If you're interested, e-mail me off list at email@example.com .
