With this in mind what would the list say a pair of SR pedals with the Ti spindles in used (but not abused, if the wear on the cages is any indication) condition is worth? I happened to meet an old friend with a pair the other day, and I inquired if he might be interested in selling his, but what to offer, I wasn't sure.

Any thoughts?

It's a couple of days late, but I wanted to add to Mark's comments. I have to question the wisdom of seaking out used Ti spindles from a trashed pedal set for use on a rider bike. Even if you have a spindle set with a known history, thay are not known for reliability. A used set may have been crashed, or simply may have been used beyond their fatigue life. So, for a non-riding restoration that just must have Ti, it may be worth the difficult conversion, but for a rider, I'd stick to SL. Remember, nearly every SR equipped bike that ever saw action was actually "SR-reduced" with SL pedals and an NR bottom bracket. (the SR post and headset are also candidates for replacemnet with the more practical NR options).
