boggling broken brake bumper

front brake arm on Campagnolo S.R. has a little bugger to keep it from bumping the frame at the extreme-there is a little hole for it.

anybody find a replacement?

Some modern brakepad holders have a small rubber bumper. I used one of these.

As said above, they are used in many applications on modern autos. Just look around any car and then go to an auto parts store so it is cheaper than a dealer's part price.

I bought the correct piece a couple of years ago. I can't remember where I got it. I guess that's not much help.
