The pedal saga continues! After thinking of just replacing the pedals and mentioning that in an Excelsior group, I was challenged (in a respectful manner) by a few to “rebuild” the originals. So I will accepts that challenge!

The pedal assemblies are very rust-welded but percervierence pays off so far.

The top cone came off on both pedals just fine. IMG_8601

Bearings were a pile of rust. They all came out but are like little rocks!

New rubbers are ordered so I am an optimist that I can save these!
