Had these AC downhill cranks for some time sitting in the draw, gifted to me from the brother-in-law. However, the ring is mashed and well beyond use. Was for sale on Retrobike but no takers.

Apparently finding a replacement chainring would be near impossible and more likley for man to land on the moon :wink: hence the reason he gifted them to me.

So....look what turned upon ebay last week and I won for £0.99. Yahoo! :D

Any of you used these cranks before good / bad?

I have the same cranks and chainring. I spent over a year searching for a spider for the cranks! I thought i'de never find one, until a single driveside crank came up for sale in the US. So I also have an anno red crank (if you ever spot an anno red non drive side let me know.)

Work as a crank should if a little on the heavy side for XC duty, but they are pretty.

On my Parkpre before it died :cry:

Now on my Saracen :D

Thanks for link and the pics are fab. Love the Tufftrax and the same cranks look sweet on the GT. I also have the AC chainguide system but this is tatty also.

Think i'll save for a rainy day and maybe SS them should the right frame and conditions occur.

I have one of those AC 46t solid rings in brand new condition, anyone know of any cranks that it'll fit? I'm building a fun bike and that ring would look great on it!

go ahead, make me an offer! I can always use it as a cake stand or a tray for some shot glasses! Amazing anodising, looks like slate!
I wonder if I could remove the spider from some shimano cranks and get some holes drilled?
