3-bolt 110mm BDC chainrings?

Howdy folks. My tinkering-around project bike has a 3-arm crank with a 110mm BCD. I recently converted the bike to a fixed gear, and recycled the 52t outer chainring. But, the teeth are pretty worn, and there is a lot of wear and tear on the inside of the ring from a couple decades of sloppy shifting (thanks dad!). So there will probably be a day in the near future that I need to replace this chainring, but I can't find one to match anywhere online. Does anybody know a source? Or am I SOL? Thanks in advance for info you can hit me with.

Sagino Maxi - right? I think that's one of the first major replacement components that I ever bought. I put it on my 1960 something Raleigh Grand Prix. Eventually I acquired chainrings to fit that crank in a variety of sizes. Unfortunately I threw all of my old Maxi stuff out years ago.

Mostly I see them on other bikes of the same vintage. Sounds like you need to find a parts bike.

I have an old Triumph w/ a 3bolt Raleigh crankset, and I just picked up an old Hercules with the same bolt pattern and many other interchangeable parts.

Even though these old rings are a little difficult to find nowadays - they were very common, so they do exist, if you look hard enough.

It seems the chainrings you want are available but, if they have become collectors and restoration items, they may be too expensive for your needs.

You could probably find a used 110 or 130 BCD 5-arm complete crank for nearly nothing if you look around your LBS's take-off and discard drawers.
