I know that it's an old part, but I'd love to find a way to keep my Schwinn World Tourist in classic shape. I'd love any recommendations, thoughts, or directions?

Yeah, give us a picture. I have at least one Shimano crank arm in the bin. I think one of them says 'Tourney' on it.

Donor bike. Is that the old Shimano FFS? I tossed the last one I had.

Hard to miss with the big SELECTA on it, and nothing else will fit with that oddball BB spindle, multiple rounded splines instead of the common four flats. Gotta be one out there somewhere but is probably owned by someone not reading this thread. FFS cranksets were constructed differently but might have used the same name.
