Need NOS Biopace 46, 36, & 28 Chainrings

For my 87 Nishiki Ariel Mountain Bike.  I used to take this dear
friend apart and stow the wheels behind the seat and cantilever the
frame across the passenger seat's cross-member tube of me ol' puddle
jumper 1946 Taylorcraft taildragger, find a sod landing strip, camp
out and ride all over the eastern USA.  This bike was made in Japan.
It is priceless, sentimental, historic, famous.  And a novel is in the
making.

I believe I have found a 46-tooth but will buy another if you know
where I can find one.  As well as a 36, and also a spare 28.

Thanks for your splendid courtesy.

These show up frequently on eBay. Are you looking for steel or alloy
chainrings?

Either one, and I probably don't even have to have biopace except for
the purist in me.  The originals are aluminum alloy.  Amazing how long
they have lasted.

Thanks for your advice.

I have five sets of 26, 44 and 48 tooth rings, but I'm holding on to
them religiously. Sorry

Keep your eye on these two eBay stores:

http://stores.ebay.ca/The-New-Old-Stock-NOS-Bicycle-Shop

http://stores.ebay.ca/Retro-Bicycle-Supply

The first one currently has several Biopace rings listed in 42/52
sizes. You might try contacting either of them to see if they have
anything not listed.

A search on eBay turned up one seller with a 28/38/48 set, albeit
those are used.
