Default Re: 3 Piece Wide Crank??

I have seen wide 3 piece cranks pictured in other kits, but have not found them available as a separate item.

Has anyone had any luck in finding a wide 3 piece crank?

Thanks, Jim
Jim, I think the 1 piece will work but you may need different bearings for it. The 1 piece fits the other Schwinn Cruisers without changing the bearings.
The 3 piece is a mongrel of a crank and it's only practical use is as a weight for deep sea fishing. I have 2 lying around here.
