Tam, Here's some Ofmega cranks that are "Mexico" copies, I just happened to have sold on Ebay: <http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7213198703&rd=1&sspagename =STRK%3AMESO%3AIT&rd=1>

Or, Ebay item number 7213198703.

If you want the real photos, and not just the Ebay shrinky dink versions, let me know.

What about measurements ... are there any dimensions you can find on the subject crank that exceed those of an unmodified Campy crank? For example, an arm in total length measures just a tad over 20.5cm; so if your subject arm should measure clearly larger than that, it cannot be a modified Campy N/S Record era crank. Of course, it could also be a modified Gran Sport crank. :)

Ciao, Mark Agree Southfield MI USA ~ ~ ~

That'd be interesting if someone would go to such length to clone a Campy crankset, and do it so poorly even! Can you point me to some photos of the Ofmega cranks of interest? Googling isn't turning up anything for me.

I just pulled off a Pista drive side arm from one of my bikes, and I'm starting to convince myself that these cranks could really be the real deal . Check out this photo:

As I mentioned before, note the concentric machining circles sort of unique to Campagnolo... but now check out the spindle hole! It's identical as far as I can tell.
