How I removed crank w/o special tool.
1. Using drimel and sandstone I made a slight deep in the center of crank axle.
2. Put bike down on non-drive side.
3. Using rope hang your bike about 2-3 inches high above floor. Hook up rope on crank sprocket as close as possible to axle.
3. hold punch in the center of axle and hit it by hammer.

Disclaimer: for information purpose only, don't do it!!! I will not buy you a new bike and eyes!!!Smile

deep in the center of axle prevents punch slip.

I made a punch from a bolt and used vise-grips to hold it.

well its a better idea than what i done before i just hit the back of the crank with a hammer. It didn't work.

it is illegal to lynch a bicycle where I come from
There are two kinds of people in the world, "Those who help themselves to people, and those who help people!"
I forgot to mention that opposite bearing has to be partially removed.
Cool idea but as you said informational purposes Wink !
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!
