FS: Lovely Williams Double Crankset

Hello,

For sale is a nice Williams crankset with fluted arms, which dates it somewhere in the early-to-mid 1960s as far as I can tell. It came stock on a 1970 Raleigh Super Course and is in great condition. There's light pitting throughout, particularly on the sides of the non-drive side arm, and there is also a name (MONTGOMERY) engraved on that arm, about 2" across and done very neatly. I had forgotten this so had to issue a refund (without any hassle) to the initial buyer.

It's back up for sale now at a discounted price of $60 shipped within the continental United States. Cheers!

-Gregory

Very Cool. My parent's Carlton Catalinas had these cranks. I felt they were well made and that was reinforced once I started working in a bike shop in the mid 70's.
Enough to consider building a bike up around them.

Neat crank and likely sold, right? I'm curious, how difficult is it--if you know--sourcing a bottom bracket for one of these?

Yes, they are sold to OTS! There are numerous cottered bottom bracket spindles or full setups for sale on eBay at mostly any given time. The important part is getting the right sort of length for a double versus a single. Usually those at about 120mm are good for singles and 130+ for doubles.

Back up for sale! I was polishing it up prior to shipment and realized that I totally forgot there was a name lightly engraved on the non-drive side arm! I've attached a photo of that in the first post and have dropped the price to reflect this unique little blemish. Cheers!

I would love this as my last name is Williams. But do not care for cottered cranks.
