    Info on my cranks.

    I bought this Paramount track about a month ago, and I'm loving it. Some threads here recently have inspired me to get some additional info on the cranks that are on the bike. I believe they are vintage Dura Ace EX pista cranks. They are 170mm. I thought, however, that the vintage EX were NJS, and I don't see a stamp on these anywhere. Was I misinformed? Any additional info is greatly appreciated!

    Oh yeah? The only stamp i saw other than the 170 was a stamp with a "Y" and another letter maybe? I don't remember exactly, and it's cold and dark out now

    I can't seem to find hardly any info on these cranks online, nor can I find a pic/description of an older NJS stamp.

    Doh, well since I was counting on CEYA to give me more info, and it appears he's not around anymore, does anyone else know anything about these?

    here's a list of shimano date codes http://www.classicrendezvous.com/Jap...date_codes.htm

    if they do have a 'Y' on them, that would seem to mean they're from 2000, which doesn't seem right.

    can we get pics of the stamps?

    Weird, they are definitely stamped with a Y and and I (Sept, 2000)

    I can't find any info on a reissue though... hmmm..
