How about telling us if they are new, old, broken, rusty, diamond encrusted, sprinkled with fairy dust, or even better post a photo. Condition is everything.

They are not the best retro cranks in the world, have limited availability of spares, were known for breaking and had bearings that died seconds after removing them from the packet. They were, and still are, a poor mans Bullseye cranks and are priced accordingly. For as new ones maybe £100 assuming they have spider, spacers and bolts, used ones maybe £50 and if you take the cap lock off your computer you can push it to £55

Now that's unfair. What if they find more tat in the cellar?


I have some great ideas for new TV shows:
'Antiques Roadshow Lite' - people go to a local leisure centre or historic house, queue for hours and ask for a valuation on an item, but here's the rub, they don't show the expert the item.
'Mystery homes under the hammer' where local estate agents are made to guess the value of a property without seeing it first and are fed to sharks if they are more than a few pounds out. (extra excitement is created by the subsidence special house that is thrown in to keep the guessers on their toes)
'Dickinsons Ebay the F*cker - local scrotes who are curious about the market value of an item stolen from their last employer stay at home in their pyjamas, list their shite on ebay with a clear description and nice photos and get a fair market value thus saving us from seeing the teak tanned twat or the smelly proles and pensioners on our screens.
