Shimano Parts Source?

Is there a particular person or shop that is a good place to start to find older Shimano parts? I need a couple tension screws for the old Look-compatible 6401 and 7401 pedals. The kind that go in the bottom of the pedal.

many thanks for any assist
Charlie

I doubt you'll find that these screws were ever available as a unique stocking item. But as a take off from an already non useable pedal, maybe. Sometimes commercially available screws will interchange with the bike specific one. The screw might need cutting down or have a different head. Have you looked into this? Andy

Yes , economics of stocking spare small parts , is not a winner.. Campagnolo did some of that 35+ years ago ..


the old shop had a little display cabinet, then.. catalog #17, on customer side, was published in 1975..
