The Bridgstone Self-Centering Brake

I have a 1985 Bridgstone with the Self-Centering (SC) "breakthrough" (per Bridgstone's Catalogs) brakes.
My "SC" quit working and it looks like the one of the parts has broken on me. (see photo) Question: Is this part easy to find? Or easy to make? Anyone out there dealt with this issue? I did the search, but nothing found. Let me know if anyone has one of these parts or has made one. Looks like Bridgestone used them from at least 1984 to 1988.

PM me, I've got a set of '84's I can send you. They're not going to be used here...

Are you the guy selling a Bridgeston3 400 on the Milwaukee Craigs List right now for $40? (see Craig's List/E-Bay thread) If not, you should grab it quick if you aren't far from Milwaukee. It sounds like a great deal....especially if you need parts.

PM sent to Scott.
Thanks Cycleheimer Even though that Milwaukee Craigslist Bridgstone 400 would be a good deal, I am about 6 hours north of Milwaukee in the Frozen Tundra of Superior/Duluth.
