Looking to see if anybody has upgraded their cranks on their Twenty and has one of the orginal crank pins available for sale. I was removing my cranks to do a good cleaning and damaged one. Thanks, George

Hi; I'm pretty sure all Raleigh cotterpins from that era will fit the cranks. Because of the fetishisation of Raleigh Chopers here in the UK it's pretty easy to get NOS items on ebay and for cheaps too.
For example: here's a pair (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180177878919&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fsearch.ebay.co.uk%3A80%2Fsearch%2Fsearch.dll%3Ffrom%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dm37%26satitle% 3D180177878919%26fvi%3D1)for £2.50. If you're not in the UK - I'm sure most sellers would send abroad or failing that - PM me and we can maybe work something out where I get them and send them on to you. How's that sound? :)
I'm pretty sure that Raleigh pins were 9.5 mm. You can get them for $1 USD each from www.loosescrews.com They also have 9mm ones.

http://bikesmithdesign.com/CotterPress/cotters.html I have had no issues with these cotter pins and Bikesmith is real helpful answering questions you may have on installing the pins.

+1 on Bikesmith designs - their cotter press is absolutely excellent, and the guy who runs that store is a member of this very forum. And I wouldn't advise taking anyones used cotters, those things are tricky enough before someone else takes a hammer to them.

Thanks guys, really appreciate the help here, especially LittlePixel, your offer was most gracious. I will look to Loosescrews or Bikesmith designs.
Are the red Raleigh nuts available also? Thanks again.
