Hope DH brakeset + bits

Early set of 4 pot brakes from Hope. These have been sat in the garage for at least 6 or 7 years so expect to tinker a bit to get them back to former glory. That said, a squeeze of the lever gives free movement of the pistons and there are no fluid leaks.

Front is E4 No.8 caliper with braided hose
Rear is DH4 No.3 caliper with regular hose

Also included is a single pot No.3 caliper, some pads, lots of nuts and bolts, a +20 adapter and two rotors. Front is massive, rear is 180mm.

Not sure on price so...

£70 posted for the lot? offers?

That #8 caliper is going to make someone very happy.

Hopefully someone has a DH bike project and can make use of it!

They guy who did the Rotec restoration in the US was looking for one.
Don't suppose you can take a picture of the other side of the #8 caliper.

Sorry to be a nitpicker but I think the #8 caliper is actually an E4, the successor to the DH4. The rear is a DH4 though and I think a rear #3 caliper is for a 165mm rotor. A recent phone call to Hope confirmed that they still have all the spare parts for these brakes (I have E4s). Hope this helps the sale, your price is very fair and I'm really tempted but I'm afraid Camp Leader would have a conniption if I bought these. Good luck.

Would you sell the mini (single pot) calliper separately?
