Thank you for posting all this, it's very useful. I have two of these Supercaliber frames, one the fluoro yellow / pink / black shade and the other the green / pink zigzag style.
I only have one of the original YST-8908 spindles and one side's thread is completely trashed. I wonder if you can tell me where to buy compatible replacements? These posts are helpful, and the ActionTec titanium 124mm spindle looks promising but I wanted to double check with someone who really knows:

To be sure, this description fits my model:
"non-threaded 127mm spindle with cartridge bearings that is held in to the 88mm cartridge by 2 circlips, square taper cranks"
Do you know where to get any more of the NOS Fisher 88mm spindles, or just equivalent ones? I'm not concerned about exact restoration I just want to get these lovely frames back on the road. The ActionTec spindle (either 124 mm #1124 or the 128mm #1128) sounds fine but I'm keen to find other options.
Well, it was just a lucky find on eBay! Really don't know who makes them. But I heard somewhere that a Phil Wood spindle might fit !?!
Not the cheapest option though!
