so if someone offered you a very nice set of polished CBR cranks or a complete post war Colson 3 bar cruiser, which would you take? :confused:

IMHO, "very nice" CBR's aren't polished -- at least not by people outside of Jack W.'s employment... and the Colson's that are worth having are PRE-war.

OK, deal done...

I'm sorry for the tease but I didn't have possesion yet. And I still have the CBRs :thumbsup: .1947 Colson, unrestored but IMHO in pretty darn good shape. I'll probably just do some light cleaning, oiling etc and ride it. Tires are pretty sketchy so I'll have to find some suitable replacements..

Nice loop-tail you picked up for some cheesy cranks. ;)
I actually did trade some cranks but not the CBRs. I had a set of 180 Boone road cranks that I had no use for....the seller did....trade made. :thumbsup:

As long as its decimal (2.0, 2.125 ...) and not fractional (1-3/8, 1-3/4....) it is the same as standard MTB tires.
