The Sampson cranks are fantastic. I was going to use Toplines, but the Sampsons are even better for this build! Thanks Richard.

Glad you got them Mike. Much cooler and rarer than your run of the mill Graftons :lol:

For sure. :) I still need to work out the details for mounting the chainrings. I didn't realize the cranks have a funky four-arm spider, with the fifth inner and outer bolts mounting directly to the crank arm.

So I finally had the AMP steerer threaded and a little taken off the top to fit this frame. Now I officially have no excuse for not finishing this build!

Indeed! I just snagged a minty AMP fork off of Ebay, so that will eliminate the hours worth of polishing needed for the pair I already had on hand. :wink:
