IDENTIFICATION GUIDE

(Alphabetical Listing)

Oh well, here goes. I’ve been wanting to do this for many years, for my own reference. This will take some time to build up, and is obviously a never-ending task. But I’ll do it bit-by-bit and, hopefully, within a few months we’ll start to have a reference point to identify manufacturers’ chainwheels. I’ll start by cross-referencing this website and then add some of the more distinctive ones, alphabetically.
