Why don't you place a request for a rear brake hanger in the wanted section?There might be someone out there with a busted frame they are breaking.Looking at my 855 the hanger is a proflex not generic part,but it would not be beyond the wit of man to fabricate or bodge something which might work.

OK that worked.Piece is made of 10mm aluminium (?) and is 50mm long.What you can't see is that it is attached to the swingarm by a bolt from behind and the depth is approx 25mm at its deepest point,where it attaches to the swing arm.
