ISO cranks that use a 109mm spindle?

I'm having one of those moments where you have a part that's burning a hole in your bin. A long while ago I purchased a Sugino superlap cup/cone bottom bracket, and it has a 109mm ISO spindle. I'm currently consolidating and selling off equipment, and would like to try to find a way to hold onto this part considering how nice it is.

Anyone know of ISO cranks that use a 108mm or 109mm spindle and aren't 144bcd? I'm...not that strong. Thanks!

Campy C record 1st Gen uses 109 mm , 135 bcd. Later iterations with the shield logo use 111 mm but would probably be OK on a 109.

I guess I should've expected that it'd be the pricier cranks. Thanks!

My Zeus track crank uses 109mm and has 120mm BCD. Neither the cranks nor chainrings are common, unfortunately.

The resulting commentary of the title is an argument for keeping the BB with the cranks. Separating them only leads to a bunch of orphan parts that we have to sort out to get the correct assembly. I am in the process of trying to create a couple of complete BB assemblies with only cups, lock ring and spindles without planned frameset for them! Offering assembly sub-parts for a damaged assembly, like breaking a Universal Mod 61 caliper arm and offering the good parts makes sense. I am not sure how many times I assumed the assembly was correct and complete only to receive it with the wrong or missing parts, brake cable adjusters, for example. I know, b*tch, b*tch, b*tch.

I really like the rear DO in your pic @JohnDThompson!
