I'm hoping somebody might be able to dig me out of a hole?

Managed to get a 1990 Fire Mountain up together, having salvaged it from a terrible fate. It's almost servicable now.

Much of the bike was in pieces and I've had problems sorting out the rear brake. It's a cantilever/u brake set-up and I've not seen another. Think it was Shimano 500LX? I'm not sure I've got it back together correctly, but think I'm only missing the self centreing springs - these don't look to have been very standard?

Can anybody confirm? Also, any advice on sourcing them gratefully received.

I'm working to a deadline. Family are off to Centreparc, and I'm getting it in the ear because I possess three bikes and none of them are actually rideable...which is a fair gripe - them cluttering up the house and not earning their keep - a bit like me.

Grateful...

I'd some suspicion I was probably in the wrong place - but in my experience sensible people always come along to steer you in the right direction soon enough.

Thanks.
