Mavic 451 Brake Calipers

Complete and in good condition. There is some scrapes and scuffing and some oxidation but they look good and work. Asking $40 shipped. SOLD

Mavic 451 Brakes

Those are great stopping brakes, they work as well as many dual pivots. I have them on my 1984 Gitane Super Corsa. They're really elegant looking.


They were made by DiaCompe and are the same as the BRS500 calipers.

Parts breakdown.

Adjustnment instructions. I've been running these since 2007 and only had to adjust them once after I initially installed them.

Maybe similar design but very different details.
