It's pretty easy to make your own clamp for a rear brake using two steel plates. Clamp the plates near the rear seatstay bridge, drill a hole through both plates and thread the brake caliper through, clamping it with some washers and a nut on the other side. For the front it's more difficult to make a clamp that is strong but doesn't harm the fork legs, but they can be bought.

Open Pros get my vote for low key aesthetics and functionality. I have no idea what would be period correct for a Paramount, especially for a track model.
