okay, i know this question might sound strange, but hopefully someone knows what i'm talking about.
i recently acquired a Fuji Sagres (VALite tubing, I'm assuming late 70s - early 80s?). the only problem with it is that the front brake is absolute crap. i want to put a new front brake on. no problem. except, there's a problem.
the fork has no hole bored for the rear nut that comes with all modern brakes. on the stock brakes there's just a hex not on the back of the fork. i tried just using a regular brake with the stock nut at the back of the fork, but it appears the fork is really thick or something. the brake will not go all the way through the fork.
if anyone has any idea what i'm saying... is there any chance you also know of a solution?
thanks so much in advance.
