So the brother-in-law is working on a semi-vintage road bike (no idea what frame it is before you ask) and he's asked me which pedals he should be looking at.... I'm by no means a roadie expert though. What I've been tasked with is an older style silver platform pedal for straps..... any ideas what I should be looking at/for please?

Many thanks.

clips and straps should be added to the price.
