Just stripped the pedal threads....so need a beater arm.

Preferably a 175mm LH crank arm in black but next best would be 170mm in black followed by 175mm silver and then 170mm in silver etc!

Something cheap[ish] as long as the threads and tapers etc are ok.

I am near Cambridge so posting will be needed [probably].

Have you tried the hot and cold water technique?

Also, if you prop up the arm with a brick or something you can use a screwdriver as a punch and knock it down the middle. if the spindle. Not sure if I have explained that well but I can maybe get up some pictures tonight if not.
