    Price of early 80's Shimano DX Pedals

    I have a guy that want to buy one of my sets of 80's Shimano DX pedals. They are new and I haven't been around BMX for many years. What do they go for now?

    Whatever somebody will pay for them. Honestly, probably not worth much.

    That don't surprise me since there's so many copys of them out there. Maybe I can get $20 for them. I think I paid about $20 in 85 for them.

    $20 sounds reasonable.

    Wait just a minute, Actual OG Shimano DX's are one of the most desired pedals in the vintage BMX circles. It's not uncommon for new ones to fetch over $100 on ebay. Sometimes even close to $200. If you are really looking to sell them, it may be worth it to put them up on ebay. Also do some looking around vintagebmx.com They are worth $$$ in new or good cond.

    Holy**** I just check ebay and one finished at $140 and it was used. Now I don't know what to do I got 3 new sets sitting here and 2 used ones. I guess I'll ask for more. When I raced in the 80's I bought every pair I found while traveling because I never wanted to be without a set and there were so hard to find in 9/16. I think I'll ebay a set and see what I get. Thanks for the help. I would have left money on the table.

    I should sell my Lotek's that they stopped making when I'm done with them, but they don't have matching laces, have little rips, and are stretched out on one foot.

    my Chuck's were in SUCH bad shape...holes, soles fallin' off, heal-cup gone (that's the hard, plastic part at the heal...they always come off).

    Shoes are worth about 5 cents each the instant you wear them and get sweat/dirt on/in them. Clothes should only be given away, not sold, and if you have to buy them used, get them from a thrift store... IMO.

    It's not so much that DX's are just old & hard to find, but these were THE pedal to have back in the day. They just felt perfect.
    Ophidian sums it up best: "When I raced in the 80's I bought every pair I found while traveling because I never wanted to be without a set and there were so hard to find in 9/16."
    You look at a lot of the old pics from the 80's: Hoffman, Fiola, Blyther, etc. and you'll find that often they're riding DX's. I've read that Rick Moliterno still has a stockpile of them so that he can keep riding them.

    So should we start buying up a bunch of Jim C's?

    Actually, I wish I had bought a second pair in the limited edition teal and kept it in the box. Mine are still going strong, but they won't be forever and I like the color a lot, so it'd be a shame to get boring black or something.
