    old japanese cranks

    Hey, I have a friend in japan right now who offered to go part hunting for me, i was wondering what i should have her look for? Suntour, Shimano, any others? I'm looking for nice vintage if I can...

    She already found me some double toe straps for 35 bucks because the old guy who ran it thought I was some American Keirin racer...

    Keirin-related stickers, patches, etc. Seriously - stuff like that is always cool.

    I have some old (late 70's, probably) Suntour Superbe track components that are pretty nice. They look a lot like Campy Nuovo/Super Record of the same period: fluted crank arms, etc. Maybe not as "hot" as the 80's superbe pro stuff, but nice if you like the vintage look.
