School me on Suntour XC-II Pedals

I got a parts bike with some nice Suntour XC-II pedals. In trying to determine a value, I found closed listings on e-Bay all the way from $30 to well over $100 (for used sets). That is quite a range. Obviously condition matters, but are there variations or subtleties to these that make a particular set more/less valuable? Photos of mine attached, comments on them welcome.

I've sold a few sets of these, none for less than $75. I've never seen a silver cage though, all of mine were black, so they might be worth more to the right person.

I'm a bit surprised that there's much of a market for these given that most vintage mtbs aren't worth much to begin with. A few are collectible but I wouldn't have thought that the market was very robust for this stuff.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the BMX collectors want them too.

Yeah, didn't they come in both 9/16" and 1/2" pedal threads to serve the BMX market as well as mountain bikes? I think I've seen some with fancy anodized cages, but black seems to be the most common.

Is that a mud dauber nest on OP's pedal?

I have two sets of these, and got lucky on both counts. I got them on bikes, and didn't have to shell out any extra cash thank goodness. I still have a bike or two that need them as original equipment, but I refuse to pay the ridiculous prices people are asking for them. I will just keep on like I have, finding them where I find them, and for the price I'd rather pay. It means less of them for me, but I don't go for hyped up prices on anything really. For this particular set, I would be in the $20 or less range. It's mostly about the anodizing, and these have none left to speak of.

As far as BMXer's go, they view 1/2 inch one piece cranks with almost the same "disgust" that we do. They won't be caught dead on a bike unless it has alloy three piece cranks.,,,,BD

Or three piece steel cranks, for some of them.....

Purebikes, I think those were black at some point. All of the anodizing is sun faded off of them. They're still black in the recessed areas the sun can't reach.,,,,BD

Yeah but many of those early, good, collectible mtn bikes came with these pedals. Great quality, rebuildable, mojo. Pristine pairs make $200 on good days.

Hard to get, always.

IMO vintage MTBs are appreciating more than road bikes. The price for lugged frame Stumpjumpers is pretty high this summer.

I'm rebuilding an 83' Ross Mt Whitney, pretty sure these were original to them until 85'. This was a time period were bear traps were newer to the market and the latest and greatest. Hutch of course had the best and highest valued.

I considered getting a set for my bike off eBay (black) but just got new retro type bear traps as the MTBs have not hit that kind of value or collectibility IMO. BMX guys are probably the one putting out the cash.
