Send me a pic with the dimensions? Maybe I've got a larger bolt for your crank.

Also, I told you it was the right crank so as it's not, I'd be happy to refund and take it back, my expense.

I getcha. My ex was from Amsterdam so I've owned Fongers, Batavus and Gazelle roadsters. Gazelle had a production-sharing arrangement with Raleigh so it just makes me wonder about that one.
