The 60s captive brands had those here in the US too.

The good part is the calipers that came with the cheaper 2 bolt levers used regular pinch bolts instead of the ball end holders that came on official Raleighs. I should compare the two different calipers side by side sometime, but I don't think there's any real difference between them besides the pinch bolt.
