Chater Lea crank Arms

Hi All

I have missed out on a couple of recent attempts to buy some vintage crank arms on Ebay, so I thought I would try here. Would anyone have a set of Chater Lea crankarms in good condition that they would be willing to part with. I am looking for a matching pair that would fit this chain ring (see picture).

Many thanks

Andy

Can't help you but Hilary has a Chater Lea clone for sale. As you know, originals are tough to find and trés cher.

Have you ever run a chain on that ring? Quite a bit of wear imo.

On a single ring like this it should be good for a few thousand more miles. I will check out the Hilary stone site but to be honest I would prefer to find some originals.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Yeah I have been watching those but the rechroming looks pretty nasty and I would rather get some in original condition. But thanks for the links.
