I’ve got it…. it’s a pedal

Skyway BMX pedal. Plastic cage. From the early 1980s.

Skyway pedals had metal cages. This is a Kingsbury or Hare pedal. I think it’s a Kingsbury. They sucked, sucked, SUCKED.

Oh, and these go back to the 70′s.

Kingsburry (Spelling) Pedal 1982
Nylon body, Chromoly Axel, no bearings!
Very light, squeaked like crazy.
