    It actually belongs to my other conversion, I'm going to have to buy another wheelset/or rear wheel and use the a front wheel I already have. I want to keep this bike sorta "vintage" I was thinking of putting some brown leather bar tape. Or not.



    cottered cranks?
    I dont know that that means?? Cotter pin holding it together?? Its like a 15mm bolt, but the crank arm around it doesnt have enough clearence to fit a socket on the bolt.

    get a pedal/15mm wrench bike tool. $15 at lbs? Well worth it, for many apps.

    and a chainring bolt tool. and a hex key set.

    You'll need a thin-walled socket to take off the crank-arm bolt. No wrench that isn't a socket wrench will do any good. It looks like those cranks are the kind where the big ring is the spider, and the smaller rings bolt to it. Maybe a better picture would help?

    Cottered crankarm basically uses a wedge to hold the crank to the BB axle. They're a pain to remove, although the only specialty hardware you need is a good hammer and 2x4.

    Doesn't sound like what you have, though.
