ISO: Shimano Exage side pull brake spring

I have an early 90's Shimano Exage BR-A350 side pull brake caliper in need of a spring. Dimensions are below. If you have something compatible laying around I would very much like to hear from you.

Many thanks in advance!

I'm renewing my search for a pair of Mafac Racer or Competition brake calipers, in decent workable condition. I have trade goods of various kinds.

Jon, I have a pair of calipers in my parts bin. Not entirely sure they are complete enough (bare calipers, no pads/holders). If you are interested, I'll take some photos.

No pads is not a problem, because I would replace them, anyway. But I would need pad holders and straddle cables. Let me have a look through my brake-parts box and see what I can find--I'm pretty sure I have one or two pad holders, although probably not four.

Found. Thanks.












I need a 26.4 Super Record or C Record seatpost for my Gitane build. Looking for one to ride that is not pristine but not been destroyed. If C Record Aero I would need the 130mm. I would like to trade this 27.2.

Seat Post found. Thanks Much

Terrible picture, but I wanted to throw out there that I have some old stems, cogs and a seatpost if anyone's looking.

Bumping my own thread here because I'm still in search of a set of workable Mafac Racer or Competition brake calipers. Skip Montanaro has kindly come forward with a set of calipers that are in good shape, but lack what Mafac calls the eyebolt assemblies that hold the pads. As it happens, I have four Mafac eyebolts, but they lack the special aluminum washers and nuts needed. Does anyone have a set of nuts and washers? If so, I'd be all set, but they're always the first parts to get lost. I think the odds are better for finding a complete set of brake calipers. I would be happy with either. As noted above, I have trade goods.

I lost one of those washers and improvised with something that looked too big but worked fine.

Jan Heinie sells the nuts and washers. Should be compatible with the Competition unless they used a different pad attachment than the Racer and Raid. They're normally purchased for "toe in" but you can also rotate them and then the brake pad stud will rest on the flat surface of the washer instead of in those little grooves.

As a machinist, I would only make such things for myself. I would want more money than what he charges in order to make them for someone else. I guess what I'm trying to say is, looks like a decent deal.

I can help here. Planned on going the Rene Herse direction myself.

Also, I've got two calipers, but only one center bolt. If Jon doesn't have that himself, he'll need one.

Hoping to find one of these SRAM 9-speed shifters (the kind with the indicator in the grip) in a bit of a hurry. Might need to use my '80 Raleigh Sports in a video where the 9-speed shifter indicator must be visible.

Do you need a SRAM compatible one, or a Shimano compatible model? Picture shows an X prefix model, that being SRAM compatible. They did make both though.

Sad to say I did not find the bag of Exage parts I was searching for today so no bare spring. However I did find a complete 105 caliper with spring and all the trimmings, say "BR 1050, max 49-39mm" on the back of the arm. LMK if this is of interest.

SIDEBAR: way back there was a guy who posted about his bike project but I noticed he had a Vintage Ford Falcon in his garage and mentioned I had a set of hubcaps...but then could not locate them. Well today I found those but now cannot find the guy with the Falcon! Any help with memory enhancement will be ALSO appreciated, and I took a picture of the caps this time!

Great, thanks. A silver one would do fine too. Don't care which X series it's from, so long as it's 9-speed.

Thanks very much for checking!

To cover myself I ended up ordering another set of Exage brakes for a reasonable price and will either use the entire caliper or will just remove the spring and use it on the current set. This will still leave me one spring short but I'm in no hurry and am fairly confident I will find one eventually on a scrapper bike, at a bike swap, or at a co-op. Perhaps I will find someone here on BF who has one. I actually have a set of 105's in waiting for another project in the queue but appreciate the offer nevertheless.

Good luck with the Falcon hubcaps, BTW!

i have purchased aluminum spacers and run a file across them to get the brake pad to toe in:
Aluminum Spacer 16mm OD x 10.2mm ID x 3.17mm Long MAS16-10-3.17 5 $5.10
https://www.aluminumspacers.com/spac.../mas16-10-3-17
Aluminum Spacer 16mm OD x 10.2mm ID x 4mm Long MAS16-10-4 5 $5.70
https://www.aluminumspacers.com/spac...ole/mas16-10-4

I would have to check the scrap-heap this is the top of my work bench to see what length I used, the 3.17mm or the 4mm
Not sure what R.H. is charging. I like to look at Jan's stuff - straight up bike porn - no way I can afford to even buy a cap! Ha!
