Set of Sims Cranks, in plain old aluminium though not anodised, nice and cheap but bet they don't stay like that.

I bought some graftons earlier this year & the non drive side arm had a crack across the top running parallel to the BB shell when installed. I dont see any major differences between sims & grafton other than slight cosmetic EG rotated spider appearance on the graftons.

M900, old LX (actually do a search on STW, some 92 LX on STW recently going cheap, when polished up they look like M900 ;) ...spesky (sugino), suntour (sugino) or just sugino! raceface turbine (but keep an eye on the granny ring threads)
