Part one looks like the American Classic. H20 mounting spacers. The two rods went into the 1/2 round channels, and the pan head screw wedged both of the = rods into the channel for the tightning. The reason the pedal clip kit is plentiful, is because most of the riders used Campagnolo pedals, and they came with the bolts and washers, the back plate of the cleat fits directly to the pedal cage so the hardware was superflouos. The fastening kit was included for a standard metal pedal that did not have threaded holes in the cage for clip attaching.
