Always wanted one of these but they were silly money even back in the day. But a friend bought me it for a b'day pressie once and I've only just looked it out having meant to have put it up here for a while.

Looks like a E Type chainset to me. But it's all joined so nicley and appears so ornate, feels like it's too nice to jangle around with your keys and stuff. Looks like it may even be silver (may have in part explained the cost). But I' wouldn't know for sure.

:D
