Subject: [CR]WTT: 175 Campagnolo left-crank-arm for 170

I have a 175mm Campagnolo crank arm, left-side, road, no-date, that I'd like to trade for a similar 170 left-side arm.

This crank arm is a rather early no-date arm. The profile of the arm is slightly more square (less bevel on the edges), than later no-date arms. However, the bevel is slightly *more* than on the earliest no-date 144 cranksets. These differences are real, picky as this may sound. I'd like to have a 170 that matches the drive-side crank I have. So I'll probably need a pic of anything you have to trade.

The arm I have is in very good used condition. Pretty much no wear on the anodizing, a few tiny scratches here and there, nothing serious. The anodizing itself is a much lighter "silvery" tint than anodizing that was used later..perhaps more of a clear anodizing than what was used later? ( I've noticed this on earlier Campagnolo cranks... generally, the earlier you go the lighter the tint of the anodizing. I like that look more than the duller, greyer anodizing that came later.)

I can send pics of this arm. Just ask.
