I bought them in the mid 80s from an LBS here in Nashua, but can't remember what brand they are. Receipts and paperwork long gone, and they have no identifying marks, labels or logos. The cylinders are 15" wide and 4.5" in diameter. I'm on the second drive belt (purchased as a spare with the rollers). The belt is ¼" - I think the Kreitler drive belts might fit - any ideas? Thanks in advance -

I've actually rode on those rollers way back in the '80s. Don't recall what brand they were, but I hated those front-tyre guards. Without them if you went off the side by not paying attention, you'd just ride right off and if you stomped on the pedals right as you hit the ground, you can ride around the room and get off smoothly. But with the guards, it catches your bike and launches you off it! :(

Those rollers look pretty cool.
They actually look like really old versions of Kreitler classics. A Kreitler belt would probably fit. When I broke my Kreitler belts, I made my own replacement belts with polyurethane cord stock and a soldering iron.
