They were available in 1988. I believe that was also their year of introduction.

I've got an NOS pair, should any of you want to trade me for a clean black pair from the mid 80's.

I saw a pair for sale at the UBC bike kitchen and since I already have look pedals on my road bike, I was thinking these would be a good option for a track bike I'm planning. Any thoughts?

I have these on several bikes. Good quality, last forever, and easy to use. Standard non Keogh Look cleats work in them both red and black. Roger

The float is in the cleat. Black - no float; Red - float (about 6 degrees IIRC).

Those look like first generation pedals, around 1985. The first models I think were called PP56 and PP66 and I think the red ones were the 66 and the black ones were 56.



A few years later they came out with a carbon grabber and a more rounded body and they called them PP76 - that was my first set of clipless (1988) and I still have them but don't use them. I've broken a few pedal spindles - they see hard service and when they go you can hit the road hard. Pedals are something I just don't buy used.
