This might seem as an obvious question but I have just brought an old bike and the Shimano brakes are missing the adjusters and clamps. Does anyone know where I can get some replacement bits from?

as above, although some of the 'universal' type adjusters often don't fit. i've had this before, and i've bought a tatty caliper off ebay to canibalise: then you get exactly the right bits. just a thought...

Exactly, it will be cheaper to buy another set from eBay for parts. Look for Exage or RX100 but you might find that you could buy a better set of calipers altogether, maybe 105 or 600 as I'm afraid the ones you have are really low level.
