This isn't near vintage but still classic at a very fair price. Decent shipping turnaround as well.

Revision. It appears they're out of silver chainrings and only have black. That's a no-go imo.

fwiw... a Sugino AT set up as a 34-50 compact crank, with a Shimano 8 speed rear end. Works quite nicely, although the selection of 8 speed cassettes isn't what it used to be.
Shifted with bar ends, with the rear derailleur indexed.

Here's my Sugino Mighty Tour on a 51cm French framed (Super Vitus 971) bike. The chainrings are a 48 and 34. Rear cassette is has a 28 tooth sprocket.

Ooohhh... what brand is that inner chainring? It looks like stainless steel.

I'm pretty sure it is stainless, but alas I have no idea of the brand. I purchased it used online for about $15 CAD to replace the original 38t Sugino chainring.

I've got the Holdsworth drillium 48-34 on my Nishiki Professional, eventually to go on a Holdworth Mistral in the project queue. Back in stock at Planet X, subtle Holdsworth branding.

Velo Orange has some, but if the money side isn't an issue, there's always Rene Herse
