Has anyone ever seen an actual Ti chainring by ANY manufacturer? I'm skeptical that such a best was ever sold as a production item by anyone, at least in the classic era, although I wouldn't doubt there were one-off examples from "mad geniuses" like Pino Moroni.

I have a pretty sizable pile of Zeus chainrings here from various models: 2000, Criterium, Pista, etc. and can state that they're all Aluminum. No titanium in my sample.
