Hello
Can anyone give me a clue to the make of chain ring on my Mavic cranks please? It/they maybe Mavic but I can't find any info on the 4 leaf clover shape.

Thanks
TP

Home made with a Black and Decker / Dremmel. Very popular in the 70's :) Sad to say I did that sort of thing :)

The Polish Panto Butcher seems to make a living out of doing it as we speak (or type)

Frame looks like an ALAN and the pedals Campag or Kyokuoto..........Nice.

Hmmmmmm interesting the DIY idea, i'll take your word for it.
Meant to ask if dust covers should be on there????

If I get home in time tonight to tek some pics, I'll post the complete bike
on readers rides.
It is a Vitus, the pedals are Specialized SP-PL NOT the touring model as http://www.velobase.com/ViewComponent.a ... AbsPos=194 with Christophe Z ergal clips and straps
That upside down pic has annoyed no end.

Can't see how to put a picture in my profile on't left??????

Hmmm! Post has been deleted :!: I hate such posts like this as it doesn't help the forum one bit,

Picture needs turning as its spinning me out :lol: Infact here you go.................

Defo DIY job.

Nice cranks, but check them carefully for cracks where the spider arms meet.
