Time to jump start this board a bit...wspokes
Sep 25, 2003 3:51 AM
Ok, this board is slowing down a bit...time to kick start it a tad. Here's some classic bike porn pics. First is a Holey ringed Zeus crankset, I love those crazy drilled out rings! Next is another of my favorites...inch pitch rings! Zeus crankset and rings date from the 70s and 80s. The inch ringer dates to the 30s while the Crankset is a Williams from 1953. If interested. I have a few more pics on these pages...I need to add more soon.

These rings are NOS, 20t and 24t. The crankset has only light use. Very shiny and polished for their age yet! Enjoy.

This is on my Old soldier bike. My 1949 Vicini. It is a Vicini panto'd crankset. I am considering taking it to get re-chromed. At first. I considered building up the bicycle in an original I believe I will repaint the frameset and re-chrome the items as well. We'll plans change daily.
How old are those, what are they made of, and are they cotterless? ...nmbicyclerepairman

alloy with splined hollow BB.wspokes

The one from the 1949 Vicini is steel cottered crankset. The Williams crankset is an early 50s model and it is indeed cotterless. I will try and post a pic of the BB as well, it is Splined and hollow...and these companies like shimano and campy think they have all the new innovative ideas in the year 2003. Anyways, the Williams crankset is alloy I believe...very nicely made. The rings are almost always steel.
