Come on peeps, I don't want to have to enter a crankset.:icon_offtopic:
The frustration is that despite having 3 in my flat, and one at Redhill post office, if the tracking from Japan is correct, none of mine are yet worthy of entry....
All the other previous winners are of such a high standard, that I'd jsut be demeaning the competition....
*but* if you want an entry to start the ball rolling, before I lose to a Leary Turbo crankset, how about the Silver Streak, as its my rider, so its actually being used. I reserve the right to add decals and re photograph it before the end of the competition.....

Ok, here is my son's entry.......
It has NOS Turbolite rims, cheng shin 1.75 gumwalls, NOS Mini Pro frame (serial 1G0004 bb) frame, NOS SS forks( serial 3KT bb), sticker set by Mark@retrospect, NOS Medium DB bars, NOS AW27 Tange Headset (supposed to be for my SS, but oh well), DB cranks, DB turbolite chainring, Polished DB MKS pedals, Sugino sealed BB, DB SR stem, SR clamp, Aero seat, Faun grips, NOS Haro DB plate, Juhar Cali Lite bar pad in black, and polished 890 in the rear with a DC Tech 3 lever, whew...hope you like it, my 9 year old is ecstatic.
Well, I'm not voting for mine when I see an example like that.
Those cranks are what I fitted to my SS bitd. Love them and want some myself! Haro plate too!
I suppose the *only* criticism I'd make is that if I were building it for a child, I'd add a front brake for safety sake. But then I work in insurance, can you tell?
its got a front brake...
...the old foot between the fork and the wheel trick.
Never let me down as a kid

Scotty, that's a stunner Mini Pro, you don't see many complete and the Larger size forks seem to go really well, something I didn't expect. Yeah Juju, those cranks are georgous and I'm glad I've stopped building because they were on my shopping list.
