500A Front & 730 Rear Alloy Side Pull Brake Calipers - 1980's Vintage (Used)
1980's Vintage (Used) Raleigh Foreign 500A & 730 Rear Road Bike Side Pull Brake Calipers.
Alloy silver calipers. Raleigh Foreign is written on the pivot washers. The model numbers are on the rear.
Front and rear pair - no brake shoes included. There are three dished washers included for fitting.
Reach is approx. 50mm on the front caliper and 63mm on the rear. Measured from centre pivot bolt to the centre of where the brake shoe would be if one was fitted in the central position. The reach is longer on the rear as these brakes were often found on vintage bikes with mudguards and a pannier rack.
Calipers are the older nut and bolt type fitting (not recessed allen).
No brake blocks are included.
Cosmetically clean. Some scratches and age related discolouration/tarnishing. No major visible corrosion to metal on calipers but there is minor corrosion to cable guides, fixings and bolts. Overall reasonable condition for age, please see all photos.
