VP-383A pedals

The soles are falling off almost all my clipless shoes and I'm out of work, so I thought I'd swap my clipless pedals for platform pedals so I can ride in sneakers. This is what I have.




I think they're VP Components model # VP-383A, but I didn't find much when I googled that. Where can I get a dust cap for it? Are all platform pedal dust caps the same?

Thanks!

All dust caps are not the same. Try going to your local bike shop as they may have a collection of caps for cheap. You could also put some duct tape on them just to keep the crud out and not spend anything if you have some tape already. Hell, maybe even a bottle cap of some sort would fit. With all the drinking going on through Covid there must be plenty of various sized liquor bottle caps around.

My LBS is a pharmacy now, but I found a new bike shop yesterday. They found a dust cap to fit, but I don't know what it came from.
