A crankset advertised on Ebay that is supposedly a Nervar Star.

I do not believe that it is. I believe these peugeot cranks were made by Stronglight. Here are two types of nervar star cranksets.

The first version is a 49bcd / cyclotourist type, which is personified in the actual crank in the box (is this the correct box? Note the big space for a 5-arm spider that goes unfilled). This crank shipped on '76 schwinn voyageurs (just checked the catalogue). The second version is the one personified in the picture on outside of the box, a regular 128bcd type. I think the second version is more common, and its the kind i had and the kind that shipped on raleighs.

The trademark of this crank is the diamond cutout in the arms, and spider arms that taper constantly (like late compagnolo gran sports.) This diamond cutout area of the arms have a rough surface that is difficult to keep clean.
