Old Brakes, New(er) Frame. Cut Down or Kludge?

I bought a nice (but somewhat rough) set of Superbe brakes to go on my Nishiki Internation Rat Racer project. The frame has recessed brake bolts but the brakes do not. Should I cut down and re-thread the brakes or kludge the fit? I did the former on another bike during my youth, but was wondering if the latter was possible and if so, where to source the needed spacer.

Not a prob. You just need a couple of these:

1987 Nishiki Prestige
1981 Trek 710
198? Nishiki Olympic 12 mixte (under construction)
