Name this Weinnman brake part!

Hi all!

I picked up a Viscount Gran Sports which has Weinnman 610 Vainqueur 999 red label brakes. I noticed it has this sort of block or spacer that sits against the fork and the brake body. The rear brake seems to be missing it, does anyone know what it's called to help me find it?

I've always called it a "spacer". They are shaped to fit the surface upon which they land and also for clearance (e.g, for the lower fork crown). In the rear, they are shaped to fit the "normally" round brake bridge. Sometimes they are supplied with the brakes, but more often as generic parts. Bike shops had bins of different ones to fit diverse applications.

Good luck.

Front and rear brakes require different mounting hardware. Your rear brake may not need this part
