Look Pedal Rebuilding

I'd like to rebuild a set of first generation Look AKA Delta pedals. Do I need any special tools? Are bearings available or will off the shelf work? Having been out for almost 25 years there has to be a lot of information available. I've Googled it and come up with almost nothing.

The Keo replaced the Delta several years ago.

Unless you can take the bearing out for replacement, would suggest that the best option is to replace with new pedals; like most bike stuff, once it's been replaced, spares dry up very quickly.

are you talking about the old '87ish white pedals? other than a pin spanner for the outer dustcap, I don'y think you need anything other than a socket and a wrench. any quality bearing of the correct size will be great.

Have you rebuilt any? There doesn't seem to be a large body of information available. Most of what I found were questions like mine. I've got the pedals on 3 bikes. I'd hate to have to buy new cleats and pedals just because the old ones can't be rebuilt.

I tend to agree with Bianchigirll. When parts get rare, I upgrade, or modernize my bike.
I'm not laughing at cs1, I hope he will laugh with me on the following:

That's what I did with my Campy 8 sp stuff. I did try to find out if parts were available first though.

I thought that's what politicians did. At least that's what it sounds like to me. As dedicated cyclists we need to be informed. Something tells me this thread is heading for a bad place.

For those who are still interested; it is pretty much the same procedure for an older Delta (without an external cap; even older Deltas have such a cap, they come off without the special tool below), I did it last week: http://www.lookcycle.com/keorecall/K...nstruction.pdf.
This is the tool: http://www.wiggle.co.uk/look-cromo-a...-removal-tool/, I bought it from bikester, Germany http://www.bikester.fr/14976.html?c=...53513957221376.
