It's an older Norco "Victory" that I'm building up that I assumed had standard 80s brake specs (47-57mm reach, bolted on single pivot brakes) but the reach is ~43mm.
I measured the rear brake bridge: front hole-6mm, rear hole-8mm, length from contact to contact-15mm.
It didn't come with a fork and I am waiting for my ebay prize to come (why doesn't anybody make a threaded 1" fork with a steerer tube longer than 200cm?)
It sounds like recessed to me, but I just want to be sure. Thanks for your replies
