A few weeks ago Jack Romans inquired about replacement axles. There was considerable discussion and much doubt whether any others were interchangeable with the Model 23.

I just came across some information which clarifies that there were in fact 9 different spindles used by Lyotard (c.1970). The model 23 axle would be interchangeable with ONLY:

Models 45 / 45CA / 45 TER

Once again, finding one now, in good condition, without removing it from a perfectly good "donor" pedal would be unlikely. But, since inquiring minds may always want to know... at least we now have an answer in the archives.

I picked-up some Lyotard Berthod all-steel platform pedals for some future frenchy project. One has a bad spindle and outer threaded race. Does anyone know if I should be able to replace these parts with ones from the more common models?
