Campagnolo Record Steel Cage Pedals with toe strap loop (Campagnolo part no. 1037) Used $150.00

Given the toe strap loops and steel dust caps, we date these beautiful pedals to about 1964. Later versions eliminated the toe strap loop and had plastic dust caps.

The bearings in these pedals feel very good. There is a little rust on the cages and dust covers.

Campagnolo Record Strada Superleggeri pedals (Campagnolo part no. 1037/a) Used $100.00

Campagnolo introduced its light alloy Record Superlight ("Superleggeri" in Italian, or often known as "SL") pedals in 1971 and produced them through 1987. With their black anodized aluminum cages, they were usually called "Campy Blacks".

Campagnolo pedals with black alloy cages and steel spindles, like this pair, are not "Super Record". Super Record pedals, made about the same time, have titanium axles. Heightening the confusion, steel-axled SL pedals and steel bottom brackets (instead of titanium) were often included in "Reduced Super Record Groups". Using steel-axled pedals added just 150 grams to the group and significantly reduced the group's price.

We estimate production of this pair to the mid to late-1970s. The first run of Campy Blacks had the part number stamped on the pedal body center section. Our pair does not.

These pedals have just been overhauled and the bearings feel beautifully smooth. The "kick tabs" on the backs of the pedals have been filed off.

The pedal bottoms look great. Looks like no one clipped a pedal pedaling around a corner.

Campagnolo Record Superlerggeri Track Pedals. Used $75.00

In cycling's days of yore, it was not an uncommon practice to convert Campagnolo road pedals to track use by removing the side quills, which was done with the pair pictured here.

The bearings feel great. The (replaceable) left dust cover has taken a beating, but the pedals are otherwise in great condition.
