    Most any center-pull will work. The Paul is damn sexy, Dia-Comp makes one, or an old Mafac Racer from a used parts bin will work.

    Or you could go for a fancy, newfangled dual pivot I think the Tektro R539 should do the trick, but with a bit less style and panache than the center-pulls.

    The Dia Comp or Weimann single pivot sidepulls that were common on cheap bikes a few decades ago should fit if you don't have a hanger for a centerpull brake. But you will need to measure the reach before you start going thru old parts bins to make sure you get one that will fit.
