    Does anyone manufacture cranks like these new

    http://images.andale.com/f2/115/106/...cranks_170.jpg

    I like the channels on the crankarm--but I'd rather buy new cranks than shell out for vintage campy
    or even vintage sugino or suntour

    If you are persistent, you can get a set for the price of the ritchey ones, and they look way cooler. Stronglight, SR, Sugino, Nervar, Zeus, Tourney, etc all made versions of them. Just hold out.

    Sure, they have a cutout, but they're a completely different style. Plus they're road cranks, not track cranks.

    I would go ape**** if I could find some cheap Super Mighty cranks.

    eew, you don't want super mights, they were crappier than a crap maker machine

    never thought super mighty were crap, I thought super maxy were the ones to avoid.

    keep your eye on ebay for a Campagnolo Victory crank. I got one NOS for $60. Road not track, but it's Campagnolo and has the flutes.
    Free Tibet! Please.

    Don't be foolish. The photo of the Kooka was my addition. I am comparing the Kooka to the OP's link.

    Back in the mid 90's, you were a big pimp in the 'burbs if you rocked Kooka cranks.

    Man, if you judge everything on that, there is nothing left to like. During that era everything mimicked everything else to the point where it was hard to tell who started it. Do early Superbe cranks suck cause they look like campy? Zeus cranks looked like campy, but there are a ton of people who will tell you they were better.
