Hello,

I'm looking for a pair of French threaded pedals. The Lyotard Berthet platform
type would be very nice, but would be happy with the basic rat trap type as well.

Doesn't have to be Lyotard, but need something suitable for a 1950s bike.

Thanks!

Johnny

Thanks for the reply. Do you think they would be correct for a 1950s bike, though?

The difference is in the thread, the French 14x1.25mm, are thinner than the English

@Thinpandas,

Sorry but I'll have to pass. Thanks for the suggestion but I need the pedals for a
historical type of restoration so they really have to be from the 1950s.

Would you consider re-tapping the cranks to be English threaded? That's my plan with some '50s cranks I have. Just to have more pedal options.
If that's heresay, then I've bought some reasonably priced French bit on Ebay from these people...

I think it's a charity too. Always been as described and arrived quickly.

Good luck with your hunt!

I did think about retapping the threads but since I don't have the tools I'd have to buy the taps, which (if I'm right) comes out about the same as buying a set of pedals.

I've no romantic attachment to the French threaded pedals, but I'd be pretty gutted if I ruined a set of cranks due to my cack-handed drilling skills.

Thanks for the link though, I'd not seen that before but it's very useful and their prices seem pretty fair.

Cheers,

Johnny
