I'm restoring a vintage raleigh bike, which is missing some of the mounting hardware for the front rod brake. I'm not really sure how to describe the parts, so I've attached a picture (the left side parts are missing, pictured are the equivalent from the right side). It is basically a plate and a spring that center the brake shoe/pad and hold it away from the rim. Does anyone know where I might be able to find something like this?
Here's a link to a UK based company that deals in vintage English bikes, parts and accessories: http://www.theoldbicycleshowroom.co.uk/
Give them a look and if you don't see what you need, shoot them an e-mail.
