Hey gang!

I'm wondering if anyone can clue me in on the differences between the various Sugino Mighty cranks of the 70s, or point me to a website with pics. As far as I can recall, there was the 110mm bcd Mighty Tour, available as both a double and triple, then the 144mm bcd variants, the Mighty Compe, Mighty Custom, and Mighty Victory. In the latter, I know the basic Compe models had the inner web like Nuovo Record, and solid spider arms, and basically looked a LOT like NR. The higher end models in some variations had slots milled in the spider, rings without the inner web, and some had drilled rings. I'm just wondering how exactly one knows which is which, since there are no identifying marks aside from the word Mighty on the inner face of the arms.

I thought the crankset on this bike of mine (a Centurion Pro):

was a Mighty Victory, but I was sent specs from a Centurion catalog recently that indicate that it's a Mighty Custom. So what is what? Inquiring minds want to know.

Thanks!
