i am after some old centre pull brakes to put on a friends bike.
i don't want to spend too much money, the cheaper the better.
so has anyone got any lying in their shed ?
many thanks, jeff.

any idea what kind of drop you need?

I have a pair of the venerable Weinmann Vainquiers, in good nick but would benefit from a clean polish & re-lube, but one has deeper drop than the other

can supply some extras with it for a few extra £ (ie pads, hangers etc.)

Regards,
Al

if you measure (accurately as poss, both wheels) from centre of the main bolt that attaches them to the frame vertically down to the centre of the pad nuts you'll get the drop required... imagine it'll be about 50-60mm, then I can check mine :wink:

Or you could just read the number on the caliper which should tie in with the centre pulls. I can see the rear are 730 (73mm), I can't read the front but looks to be shorter....
