Does anyone know where I can purchase the correct (23.35 mm?) puller for a Stronglight crank (mid 70s Peugeot)?

Also, regarding the discussion on fenders. I have made several sets of fenders from 3/4" PVC pipe (thin wall) using a heat gun and tie wraps to mold the split pipe around a tire. I split the pipe using a band saw. WIth patience and a little bit of skill they come out very nice. The trick is to make many passes with the heat gun, slowly relieving the stress in the pipe but being carefull not to scorch the pipe. I have narrow (airfree) tires (I love them) so the 3/4" pipe is perfect but 1" pipe might also work well for a fatter tire. They are light and strong and can be painted if white doesn't work for you and they are fun (in a compulsive sort of way) to make.
