Found in some far away classifieds for $100CAD. Yup.

Looks to be some odd welds on the non-drive side. Top and bottom spot welds 1" from the pedal threads. Repair, or?

I had never before seen a ti version with the spherical* ends like the aluminum, usually they are cylinders on the ti ones.
Since doing some more research I have read that this was an upgrade to improve the Q-factor*.
Also have read these where $600USD in 1994!

321g with road spider

will get better pics when it arrives

Re:

For histories sake.

Here are some pics of this CQP titanium crankset with the rare barrel ends.

These came today in a box without any padding, just rattling around..lol. You get what you pay for. After 10 minutes with some 600grit they are looking pretty nice.

Re:

new pics with clear shots of the spot welds on the non-drive side.

Now seems clear that the spot welds where part of a process to replace the barrel end of the non-drive side crank. The welds are very neat on this repair and makes me think it was done by CQP in late 1993 or 1993 when they had perfected their welding technique.
