    Is this consider a vintage part?

    I'm looking for one of these and have had no luck so far. Not sure if this is consider a vintage part or not. It's a Specialites TA Randonneur.

    Try them, or Bicycle Specialties in Toronto. Mike Barry closed the store, but he still has some NOS TA parts.

    Both Stronglight (49D) and TA (Pro 5 vis) made cranks and chainwheels on this pattern. I believe that they're interchangeable.

    Question: are the bottom brackets interchangeable? Seems like they both use a 118 mm spindle for a double.

    I'm considering making some of these chainrings. Primarily an 1/8" single speed version, but maybe I could do some doubles/triples as well, if there's much interest now that the originals are out of production. Is there?

    thanks,
    Andrew

    Peter White Cycles is a TA dealer for the US - not sure whether he would have anything like that.
