Subject: [CR]Some mightly expensive bolts

For what its worth, I continue to be amazed at what some people are willing to pay for small, seemingly unimportant items on E-Bay. After recently purchasing some very nice 1975 Campagnolo Super Road pedals, I discovered that I needed to pick up some of the bolts needed to attach the old school Christophe toe clips to the pedals. I found a kit on E-bay:

Item #7104792990

After placing a max bid, which I, myself thought was way over the top, I was out-bid. Someone paid (hope I am not offending the potential buyer who may be on the list) a whopping $27 plus dollars for these bolts. My wife, who was standing by watching this occur on the computer and was laughing so hard she had tears streaming down her cheeks.

Now I need to find these bolts. Can anyone make a suggestion? Thanks,
