I'm in the process of refurbishing a '78 Raleigh Competition GS and discovered a broken brake part. The damaged part is a pivot-pin for the Weinmann brake lever.
Are these pins readily available at local bike shops? Or, are they obsolete and available only through obscure sources?

Might wanna' talk to these guys. I don't know them--only know of them. Understand they have a bunch of old parts....

Thank you neil0502. I'll give Cyclart a call.
Those pins seem to be broken more often than not on those old brake leverss. Dia-Compe levers were just as bad. Good luck finding a replacement, I just decided to go with newer style levers.
jeez, just dissamble a junker lever already... don't overtighten or may end up with the same result.
