Sakae cranks

I need to remove a mid-80's Sakae crank off an old Shogun 600. The crank bolts have a large horizontal slots with 3mm diamond-shaped holes in the middle of the slots. Since my meager wrenching skills only date back to the mid-90's, I am unfamiliar with this beast. Any cheap suggestions that don't involve buying an expensive tool I will never use again?

Roll it into a shop with a 6-pack of beer?

You're probably looking at the dust covers, just unscrew those puppies and you'll expose the actual crank bolt underneath which will probably be a 14mm hex head bolt.

But he'll still need a crank puller to get them off, even with the bolts/nuts removed.

A nice 6 pack will probably cost less than a crank puller!

Yep, dust covers. Your basic crank puller works on similar SR, Sugino, Shimano cranks. Might be nuts under the dust caps, instead of bolts.

Pretty sure my Shogun 400 has the same crankset. Spin off those dustcaps and underneath you'll find the 14mm bolts mentioned. back them out and use a standard crank tool to pull 'em off.
