Replacement raleigh rubber pedal blocks?

Anybody know where I can find some? I don't want to give up on my Sports' nice Raleigh pedals but the rubber is cracking and falling apart now.

I found some (70s vintage with the Raleigh symbols on them-- same age as the bicycle recipient) on ebay for a reasonable price after checking the local coop to no avail. I tossed the ones that came off the bicycle because one of them was bent and both of them were rusty.

I like these non-servicable 70s raleigh rubber block pedals better than the servicable MKS ones you can buy new. The latter are too bulky/clunky for me.

I have a pair of the 70s one around here somewhere. Maybe I'll use them instead... I would prefer to just find the rubber bits though.

Hey Old Fat Guy,

If the original poster doesn't want those pedals, I'll take them off of you. I just bought a pair of "vintage" pedals off eBay only to find they were made of hard plastic and not rubber.
