WTB: DA 7400 pedals

Looking for these - need not be perfect, but also not beat to all heck.

...you probably know this, but I'll mention it anyway. All the Shimano aero pedals in that style are roughly equivalent, except for the Dura Ace logo. These are my favorite pedals, along with the old SR SP 100's, as quill pedals when these look out of place on a bike. They made them for quite a while, so I have a collection of them ranging from DA, through 600, up through 105's. They're all basically the same in style and function. The extra large toe clips have been difficult to get for quite a while, but I finally lucked into a stash of those.

Anyway, good luck. Of the ones I have here (many), only one or two sets are Dura Ace, and I'm using them.

If you don't have the proper shoe cleats, they made a flat plate mount for the clips (also hard to find). Lately, I've just been taking the lip off those cleat mounts on a bench grinder.

I have a couple sets of 600s you're welcome to, but I have to keep my 7400 after I built up a platform out of sugru to make them more comfortable in soft soled shoes.

No, they're not. The PD-6400 version of the pedal used standard ball bearings and axle with an "aero"-style body and the proprietary 3-bolt toeclip, so it superficially resembles the Dura-Ace pedal. The PD-7400 Dura-Ace version used roller bearings and two different ball bearing races to accommodate a lower profile body for greater cornering clearance.

...OK. thank you for the correction. I've never disassembled one.

Why are these your favorite pedals? (not to hijack the thread, but I'm curious).

....decent sized platform, tapered to avoid pedal strike, and comfortable for fat feet. like mine. They just seem to work for me.

I like the PD-7400 (Dura-Ace) version on a fixed gear, for the greater cornering clearance they provide. They were pretty popular with track riders BITD, but never got NJS certified AFAIK. I suspect they were too non-traditional for the NJS certifying board. The proprietary toeclips are the only serious drawback.
