unidentified campagnolo pedals- superleggeri?

thinking about cleaning these up. I have no idea what model they are... superleggeri? i would appreciate advice on how to distinguish between different models. they do not have the caps they don't grind at all, planning on overhauling them, i know they would clean up nice, but wondering if its worth it. are they a high end model or not? what are they worth?

I am not sure what model they are but they have seen better days, thats for sure. they look like they would be quite serviceable after a good cleaning but finding dust caps could be an issue.



I am not sure about these threads, I would not screw themonto one of my bikes looking like that. running a die over them may help

I agree about the threads, they look pretty bad and I wouldn't thread them into my crank arms without having them cleaned up.

yeah, i agree. I was just wondering if anyone out there was in my situation, if you had these pedals, would you overhaul them to put on your own bike? i know less-than-perfect clean but used campy pedals can be worth more (and perform better) than many other brands when purchased new. any tips on model type? thanks

Locate some MKS dust caps, they make a size that fits. Then rebuild them. The threads need to be wire brushed at least, and the one axle looks pretty rough in the chrome dept. Users for sure. Not worth buying a new axle probably- sellers often ask way too much.

Superleggero, superleggera. I have to go look at a pedal box to remember the correct spelling. There are alternate spellings on the web sites with Campagnolo time lines.
Also Known as SL's, Superlights, Black pedals.
Not Super Record pedals as often promoted in ebay titles. The Super Record pedals had titanium axles, and I would not ride them, poor material choice and they kept the wrong part of the design the same, the corset waist between the wrench flat and the pedal body. Some guys who did have them complained about knee pain from the axle flexing.
