    I had the same problem with the cheap rivetted chainring/cranks on my old SS convert. I ended up picking up some older XT crankarms on ebay - they work great!

    here is a spacer pic

    Hope it helps. You will prolly not want to set up the rear wheel until you have the cranks so the chain line is straight.

    What is wrong with the old cranks? Get some shorter chainring bolts and use the middle ring.
