I'm trying to track down parts to build up the 1973 Jack Taylor curved seat tube fixed road bike that I purchased from Ray Etherton at the Cirque Swap Meet. I've got a line on the TA track crankset and an ASC hub from list members already. There are two things I can't seem to track down quite yet that list members might be able to provide if they've got something they might wish to sell. I'm looking for two sidepull brake caliper sets that will provide a 60-65 mm reach. Alan Schaeffer says that a Weinman 730 should do it, which would be fine, but almost any good older sidepull would work for me. Centerpulls are an option, though there isn't a good way to mount a cable stop to the seat cluster, since the seat bolt is threaded into the frame. Also, I'd like to find a set of older track style hubs in 36 hole with a double fixed rear in order to have two wheel choices for the rear. Although this bike is a 1973 frame its details appear much older, dropouts, fork crown, etc. and I plan on building the bike up with older period parts. Please e-mail me off list.
Thanks, Dan Artley in
