Can you tell me about this DW 5000 pedal?

I also have the same pedal. I got my first "real" drum set (used) in 1989 and it came with the double pedal with triple towers and the second beater with all the bends. I could never get the left side to feel great and ended up removing the primary pedal to use as a single. It's a turbo (assuming they called it that at the time) and I used it almost exclusively for almost 20 years. I think I lost some parts along the way for the double pedal which is disappointing. My best guess is 83-88 with the silver base plate. Not sure the first year of the red plate but my brother's 1993 pedal is red with the old style silver hinge and radius rods.

Just for the sake of completeness I thought I would post a couple of photos of similar early DW pedals.
I don't know much about them and have not played them, I just collect them. Thanks and Merry Christmas!
