Speaking of chain rings (don't know if I brought this up before), but I have a NOS set of Sugino rings 54/42 that are fluted and drilled. I bought them in the early 80s, and is wondering if anyone knows about these? For instance the actual year or years that Sugino did this.

I was struck by that wonderful contrast of the yellow Benotto bar tape on this with the blue paint. To me, this looks more late '70s to early '80s when Benotto colour cellotape or whatever they called that stuff (always reminds me of gift wrapping ribbon) was simply de rigeur. Just when was Benotto tape introduced? Or was it around for years and only really cool guys used it before it became the fad du jour?

A lovely machine even if it has all those little holes in the chainset.
