I had time to gather most of mine together a few days ago, as a couple of my bikes were in pieces to be serviced.

The clover leaf turbine is the newest acquisition, the next oldest is the crankset I have had for the longest. It was a black turbine that came fitted to a Kona stinky way back in 1998, and was transferred to various bikes and was only retired as I now shows a few hairline cracks. I have fond memories of this crank, the bikes it was fitted to and the rides we had. I am glad I have been a loyal raceface customer, their high end products are fantastic.

Light bright green was certainly made BUT I don't think it was as retro era colour, more a modern-retro colour.
I've seen the LP in square taper version some where in this threwad (edit page 8)

One minute I'm sure Google search will bring some thing up too

Ah eBay..

Besides Caramba Double Barrels, RF Turbines have to be my all time favourite cranks because they look pretty, are light, and just work because they're strong and stiff. Wouldn't mind a Next triple though...

My ano silver ISIS Turbines cleaned before being installed on the new bike

When the ISIS bottom bracket bearings crapped themselves, I sold the cranks and brand new rings and bought some Deus Turbines

That bike was stolen and the On-One Whippet got fitted with these babies with stainless silver RF bolts
