clipless pedals
 
Ok,I picked up a Miyata 914 and it has pedals intended for a special shoe. My question is what shoes? what cleats? are there any economical options?, I am just barely getting by ,So I can't just happily order something. what to look for on ebay etc.? Is there any way to convert normal cycling shoe?( I have a pair) the groupo is all Shimano 600 and the pedals say Shimano, they have a grey finish

If it is a Shimano pedal, it would usually be SPD or SPD-SL. Do a google search and you will have your answers. There are plenty of economical options regarding shoes and cleats that will fit these pedal systems. However, if you are on a reallly tight budget, you can just replace them with regular platform pedals for about $10 or less.

Any chance you could post a pic of the pedal in question?

Pictures would help. Over the years, Shimano has used at least three different, mutually incompatible clipless cleat designs.

They are probably the "600 Ultegra" version of Shimano "Look" style pedal:

These use a "Look" style cleat and compatible shoe. If there were a bike co-op near you, I would be shopping for usable shoes- converting existing shoes is possible, but problematical. (What kind of "normal" cycling shoes do you have? Can you take a picture of the sole and post it?)

I agree with Taga- you may be better off removing them and installing inexpensive platform pedals.
