Hi Joe,

That definitely looks like a modification. A backing plate can be seen behind the spider, and this presumably would hold the small ring and attach to the spider. It looks like a very clean job!

There must be an interesting bottom bracket setup as well.

Hi all

Just purchased an early '80's Lotus Legend with a crank I am unfamiliar with. Did the Shimano 600 EX Arabesque group crank ever come as a triple, or would this be a custom conversion?:
