    Rod brake help!

    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?
