    Weinmann Brake Lever Pivot Pin

    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?

    Thank you,

    Jason

    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.
