Shaun,

They are well worn and torn in one side. The plates are very worn as they are plastic, i saw new Sidi plates on ebay for £9.99 +p+p but i would like new shoes to fit them to.

This is all provided that i really want to keep the old pedals.

To reiterate my previous query - is it acceptable to change to new pedals for ease of use although the retro look may be lost?

Thanks.

If it wasn't here it was the CTC forum where some one had a stack of plates, both alloy and plastic for sale.

If you want old style shoes with nailed on plates ..........the shoes are going to be the problem to find.

Unless you are going for a totally authentic build then I don't see a problem with SPD's and the like :)

I am an eleven. I would prefer 80's shoes like the Sidi ones I have, but I will consider anything, thanks again.

Shaun, thanks for the pointer.
