one general tip for when the exact hub cone is not readily available. discovered that the curvature of the bearing surface on the shimano 600 was a pretty good "skeleton key" for many applications. it would sometimes require a small change in ball size to make everything come out correctly.

Looks like centerpull brake bridge, (with an adjuster?)
but I think it must be something odder for you to post it.
i'll be back to find out.
Cheers, Eric

it just sits there, under the interrogation light, remaining silent. and you yell, "we know where you were during the accident, cable! you're looking at major time here! talk, damn you, talk!"

The cable from the lever goes to the pinch bolt on the right. A liner has been cut to match the length of the straddle cable so that everything lines up evenly.
