Hey Folks,

I'm after a period front brake for my 50s Carlton track bike. Running it on 700c so require a brake drop of around 60mm, and nut fitting with a left sided cable pull.

I'm sorted for a lever and cable, and have been running a cheap calliper to get me around, now fancy something in keeping with its original guise.


Thanks!

:)

Left side when you look from the front or when you are sitting on the bike? A GB or Weinmann probably the best bet. I think I've got some Weinmann 730's and probably some 500's but they'll need some TLC.

I do have a GB with lever - but it's MINE!

Heh! Lever I have is below... would you be so kind as to let me know the brand if possible? I have a feeling your supreme retro knowledge will bring a result!... It's the only thing on the bike I don't know what it is :(
