Well the TA Cyclotouriste crank has gotta go at the top of the heap, with it's wide range of possibilities, forever reliability, and low Q factor

Next - Phil Wood Hubs

Mafac Racer brakes (w/ Matthauser pads) Yes they squeal but with brazed on bosses they are as good as any brake out there

Dura Ace freewheel - the best ever ! Strong enough for a tandem

And Reynolds 531 DB toobs ! No more need be said.
