Need some single pivot side pulls with a recessed bolt fitting. Reach has to be 55mm. Was thinking about some Shimano 600's maybe. Something suitably retro for a CB Dalesman.

£20-30?

I have a set of shimano 6400 tricolour series single pivots. not mint condition, but not too bad either. Will sort some photos later tonight if I can, or tomorrow. 25 GBP posted?

Are they the gunmetal grey ones? I'm after something in keeping with the style of the bike.

Yes they are, like these on velobase (but not quite such good condition! :oops: )

Thanks for the offer but I'll have to pass mate. I'm after something more 70/80's. Something like this:

I've got a set of DiaCompe complete with levers and hoods. Similar(ish) to the early 600's you've shown. Reasonable condition. PM me if you're interested.

I have Shimano Golden Arrows brakeset that are similar in style to these. I have calipers with recessed nuts and QRs/barrel adjusters but no blocks, and levers with no hoods. I can probably find a pair of 3rd party hoods to fit. Let me know if you're interested at all and I can sort out some quick photos. In the meantime, here's the velobase link:

Thanks bikenut but I'm not after gunmetal ones.

Gareth: consider me interested. I'm not too worried about levers but I'll take a look
