As above for a rear brake. Gents bike. I have the ladies bike version of these brake (tpe 810?). Wheels are 26x 1 3/8" so need to have sufficent drop. Goin on a old Phillips bike that has been completly restored.

I may also take a apir of calipers of a different type so long as they are period.

Need to be in decent cosmetic condition. I have levers. This one part is stopping the build arghhhhh.

I may have been a retard. Surely I can swap the achor bolt and the guide to turn the ladies frame caliper into a gents frame caliper. I'll try that.

Yes it worked. Funny how things come to you after you need it.

I am rather certain I can help you with this caliper if you are still seeking?
