Sugino Crank tidy up
« on: January 27, 2018, 05:09 PM »
I got this cheap set of Sugino cranks off Spen this week. The drive side is a Maxy Cross and the other side is just plain but a similar shape. Theyíre in decent shape but I thought Iíd give them a small resto.




I started by removing the remaining anno and gave them a good clean with wet and dry sandpaper and scotchbrite.


I then masked up the stamped arm and painted tho logo and gave it a going over with the wet and dry to remove the excess paint off the arm.




Both were then masked up to paint the rest of them.


Wet and dry again to get the lines as neat as possible. Del made me a decal for the unstamped arm, this was applied and repop dust caps and a cheap machine toothed chainring off eBay and this is the end result. They still have a few battle scars and maybe with a bit more time spent on the masking up could look a bit better but Iím pleased how theyíve turned out.

Not bad considering they've been at the bottom of the bargains bin from my brother's stash from years back - just had another look and they look great now :coolsmiley:

Cheers Spen Iím really pleased with them. Speaking of the bargains bin have you got anything left? Iím looking for a cheapo seat clamp something like a Suntour copy or similar and an SR stem or similar theyíre to go on my Pug build so donít want anything fancy.

Great job on the cranks mate , I had them on loads of builds over the years . God knows what happened to the non drive arm but if you ever saw the quantity of bits I had you may forgive me misplacing a few bits and bobs along the way 😀

Fook me bruv, I thought you'd forgotten how to use the tinteweb :2funny:

Here you go, this pic might explain the scale of the problem - this was what you left me to sell after we cleared your lock-up the when you came back in summer 2016..... :shocked:
