A present from my mate -who runs the nearby retro-bike shop&service 8)
OK,it's not an MTB part,but something special:hand-craft converted from a DuraAce crank(make of year B B,it means February 1977)
This tool was proven recently: it works perfectly! :lol: Guess what is it for!

Thanks! I have a slightly bent crank from 1981 on my desk which I was trying to resolve to chuck out. Now I can modify it and keep it.

I do believe,that it's a brilliant idea converting old parts/bits to something useful -and a beer-bottle opener is really indispensable... 8)
