Scott,

\If you must have them buy new or used ones. They are quite common and much cheaper than re-chromage or re-rivetage, eh!

<< Listers, Picked up a pair of 1037's for twenty buck a couple of months ago. The cages were badly rusted and upon disassembly I discovered that the spindles had an O-ring to keep out dirt/water instead of the familiar knurled threading. I mentioned this to the list at that time. I had the idea to bead blast the rust off the cages and sure enough I was able to remove all of the rust -- and the chroming as well. Now what to do. The rivets look formidable and how would anyone reattach the cages if one managed to remove them to begin with? I hit on the solution to mail them off to Campagnolo. Hey, they built them. They must be able to fix them. Nope. Like sending a 1953 Packard Carribean back to the factory in Detroit. They replied that they couldn't rechrome the pedals and were sending them back asap. Oh, buggery! Now I am faced with the task of drilling out the rivets myself and attempting rechroming locally --- or I have a set of really neat paperweights/possible bookends. There's a lesson inhere somewhere. Oh, right. You can't go home again. We are on our own, I'm afraid.
