    braze-on for drum or coaster brake

    I have to add some braze-ons to an older frame and am wondering about brake arms. I'm fitting a SA 5spd hub with a drum and want to integrate the mount for the brake arm. Are there pre-made braze-ons for drum/coaster brake arms or should I just fab something from some flat stock? I'll need something for both front and rear.

    I believe one of the sources in the Suppliers thread has one or two listed... Frankly it would likely be quicker to just fab one from stock that to fuss around finding one, ordering it, waiting, etc., and be a lot cheaper also. Probably a bit of 3/16" thick stock would do. Might snip a piece off a bit of 2" angle as it will be thicker towards the 90 which you could leverage to make its intersection to the frame member stronger and also look better...

    the closest thing I can think of is the number plate braze-on at NOVA

    But you would be better off fabbing something yourself
