Hi,

I'm looking for brake pad inserts for the BSA Airborne Bicycle I'm restoring, as well as a source for the pads for other bikes of the same age.
They're essentially the basic square block shape, but I need inserts as the holders are a unique design for the bike.
Does anyone know of an affordable source for such a shape pad?

Gosh!!!
I didn't know bits for something like this could be so expensive. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 0248468796
Have you tried "The Old Bicycle Company" http://www.theoldbicycleshowroom.co.uk/ ... t-15-c.asp they seem to have most bits.
I'm sure I've seen another site but can't for the life of me find it at the mo. I'll keep looking and post it if I find it. They had all sorts of stuff inc. acetylene lamps. 8)

Yeah, they aren't cheap, hence why I'm trying to restore one my father bought 20 years ago.
Luckily, I only need the pads, the calipers are all fine.

Thanks, but I'm actually ok for the hardware, it's just the rubber pads that I'm after, and I also doubt those will stay that cheap for long.
