classic looking outboard bearing bbs

Anyone know of some classic looking outboard bearing cranksets with bottom brackets?
I hate the look of the new ones, but like the way they feel and the east of installation.
Thanks

Do you happen to have a link? The quick search I just did only showed Sugino Alpina cranksets that take a square taper BB.

Me too, I think he misread the post. The only Sugino crankset with a OBBB listed on their website is the OX801D, which is over $500.

I like th FSA Gossamer compact in silver, a good match with the silver DA/Ultegra 9 speed deraillers, levers & brakes on my Merckx

Probably of no help, but I could not resist since it somewhat fits the topic.

The alpina on that bike (my bike) is a 130x74 outboard bearing triple Alpina in 172.5mm. It has Ultegra 52/42/30 rings and Dura Ace bearings (BSC). Near perfect condition. It's rarer than hen's teeth, apparently. You can see the OBB and the drive side of the "pipe" here:

I'd like to switch that bike over to a 48/34 compact (square) Alpina with an SKS BB, so let me know if you want to talk business.

Campagnolo Athena, 11sp, is an alloy group. The crank, while stylistically modern, is at least all shiny silver looking. The graphics may even come off. Here's a 2010 close out at a good price.

Andel actually has a pretty good looking one, but I can't find the thing anywhere, since Andel just sources cranksets for other companies at the moment (Surly, etc).

Shimano Tiagra in silver, but it's big ugly fat cranks. OK if you're into cankles I guess. On the up side, they are very smoooooooooooooooooth

And Otis, thanks! That is the ugliest campy anything I've ever seen, makes me feel OK about OBB's
