Shimano 600 pedals

I never see these with good clips, so they're unique (to me). They were really easy to adjust after overhauling, too. Value?

Several sets have been sold on Ebay recently, ranging in sold price from $1.00 US to $48.00 US. The most sold for between $25 US and $35 US. Hope that is a help.

From what I've seen, the toe clips and those little plates holding the clips in place are more sought-after than the pedals themselves. I wonder how many of the recent eBay sales were for incomplete pedals.

The end caps also seem to go missing a lot.

With clips and end caps with really nice cosmetics I would put the value at about $40.

I've got 2 pairs sitting around, both nice, one basically NOS. usually go nowhere above $40. Always seem underpriced relative to the design, chrome and great toe-clips. But I'm not gonna argue with the market...

Yep, this time, the correct answer was $40 net.

A little strange, just because I never see 'em in such nice shape (without broken clips). But I'm happy for the buyer.

...I really like the various iterations of Shimano aero pedals, and a lot of them that show up for sale saw little use because they were immediately replaced by people who wanted clipless.
I probably have 20 pair in service on various bicycles right now. The larger toe clips were unobtanium for a while, and were commanding eye popping prices on e-bay for a time.

The toe clips are undersized, so until I lucked into a stash of the XL nylon ones at Colorado Cyclist one time, I only had three or four pair that were rideable.

Those little triangular cleat pieces are unique IME, and unless you actually have the cleats they were designed for on your shoes, they just get in the way. So I grind off the ears to flatten them and use them with flat soled mountain bike shoes.

40 bucks is a solid price if the clips are the right size for the buyer. You can set them up with leather straps and look very stylish. But the beauty of the design is that the platform sits far enough out from the crank to allow almost any toes strap, no matter how thick it is, like the Pake Space straps. Did I say I really like these ?
