    Beautiful craftsmanship. More like wall art then something to get bolted on my bike.
    The way I ride, I cant see them on "my" bike.
    A trip down Noble Canyon, or a weekend on the Kokopelli and I would be crying the blues like it was the first scratch in the paint job of my Lamborghini!

    Of course it will! How dare you ask such a question.
    It is also much "safer" than regular cranks. And is also a wise investment for a child's future college needs....

    @rossage two questions

    What’s your shop discount?

    Can you mount a bash guard on these? :p

    Shop discount? Those things aren't even available yet. And in very limited quantities.
    That means no Ti cranks for you!

    If you put any type of cover over those luscious crank arms you must turn in your man card.
    I want to see a well-worn set of those cranks in about 10 years. Scars and all, I bet they still look good.

    Not sure if it was the word "crank" or "porn", but probably a combination of the two that got this post blocked at work.....

    Jay Leno's Garage recently had a Lamborghini vs Porsche tractor race with Tim Allen. One was a '48 I think and the other a '58

    Didn’t see that! My brother has a Ford tractor from the 50s that is still going strong. I used to drive it as a little kid during bailing season when it still belonged to the farmer next door...
