Notario's are here!

Just this morning I became the proud owner of a couple of New-Old-Stock Notario pedals. In Spain they were not only coveted but also regarded as equal to Campagnolo's best.  Well, yes, it may seem way too much but if you take a look at the smart stylish design and their impeccable finish they   seem close to perfection.

Servicing was quite easy, though it took me some time to figure out how to extract the dust cap (there was no visible indentation and unscrewing seemed not an option so I finally used a pair of pliers to pop it out).
After applying a generous layer of grease and fiddling with the adjusting nuts they started to turn smoothly. No, smoothly is not the word, though it comes fairly close...
