If you have the talent and equipment to do pedal castings, I hope you will consider the original wide Sho bud pedals. More guys are after those than just about any other.
same with older Emmons pedals.. they are getting hard to find, and I see many guys trying to find them without much luck..... bob

I've long time wanted longer pedals on my LeGrande. Purchasing a set would depend on the cost for me.

I too will be watching. They look great. BTW, from past threads, I'm not alone in looking for longer Emmons type LaGrange pedals . You'd probably sell quite a few. Me personally, I don't even care if they look like Emmons pedals as long as they would fit in the mounts. RP

Russell.. I am sure someone on the forum would be happy to send you one to copy if you submitted a post requesting it. Those large Bud pedals have become really scarce, and there are always guys trying to buy them. From what I have seen the emmons pedals are just as tough to find these days. I think you would sell quite a few... bob
