Spindle length for Shimano 600 triple crank? 6207

Hello!
I have a FC-6207 Triple (Biopace) crankset. Was looking to see if anyone knows the spindle length to these bad boys.

The FC-6207 doubles I have came with 116 mm spindles. Sutherlands lists 120, 122.5 and 124 for JIS triples in a 68 mm wide BB shell, so that's about right (116+5 mm for the extra ring = 121).

Ditto to that. FC-6207 doubles took 116mm: https://www.sheldonbrown.com/shimano1982/pages/24.html . The triple version of the crank was FC-6206: https://www.velobase.com/ViewComponen...m=115&AbsPos=8 , and it took a 122.5mm spindle.

One of my all-time favorite cranksets:

The crankset is 600EX... Biopace describes the chain rings.

With that being said, and since we already nailed the bb measurement, the quality of these cranks is first rate and they can be polished to a mirror like shine.

I have a NOS Shimano 600EX FC-6206 in original, 1984 packaging. What is it worth?
