Links to LOOK pedals info?

Are there any sites regarding types of LOOK pedals? I picked up this Red/White pair at the coop, and I'm trying to figure out the make and what kind of cleats they take.

I'm just telling you what happened. I could've pulled over and tightened the bolts, and kept going. I didn't.

Old dude too, so I find myself wondering if I should just convert my old roadie into fixed, as opposed to getting another Track frame. Is the Steamroller appropriate to this?

Cheap, like less than 300.
