Thanks all!
I will search for something like Sugino GT or AT.
Damn they are expensive. Would almost be cheaper to buy the frame with components on it...
By the way - noticed those Sugino are usually quite short -165 or 170 are mostly for sale. Haven't they made 175?

They certainly did come out with 175's because I have them on my old Rapello. :mrgreen:

Also (and depending on how fast you want to spend) have a look at Rivbike, VeloOrange, Rene Herse and the like.

Retro looking, modern cranks.

Well I know that at least one 175 mm Sugino GT Crankset was brought into Australia because it is in my Shed.
Is it for sale by any chance?

Yes, but I am away from home until tonight.
After I get home I will check its condition, see what spare chainrings I have and get back in contact with you via this thread.

You are welcome to have my currently unused,175 mm Sugino GT compact Crankset.

All my bikes are happy with their current cranksets so this one is not needed by me.
I got it a few yrs ago at a Swap meet, I reckon it is circa- 1986 ish and is in very good condition.
I will contact you by Personal Message on this forum, I was thinking about 20 dollars for the Crankset (without chainrings) plus postage plus a few dollars for chainrings.
I have some 46/36 chainrings (Sachs brand) that appear to have only moderate wear.
But they are black.
Cheers
