I have bought and old late '80s Vitus road bike and am stripping it for a 're-group' My Shimano chain bolt cup removal pin tool doesn't quite fit it.
Can anyone confirm if these early chainsets were allen bolt removeable or whether I need to get these dust caps out and the bolt off to fit a crank removal tool.
Basically I need to get these cranks off as I've sold them to a collector for spares and would be interested to know a bit more about them for removal purposes and possibly where I can source a suitable pin tool if I have to take the dust caps and crank bolts off first.
thanks - any/all advise appreciated.
