Last night while adjusting the front brake I broke the wheel guide off of one of the shoes. I was squeezing the front brake using the wheel guides, instead of using a 3rd hand tool. The brakes are SR, with the black rubber on the wheel guide. I did not realize they could be so fragile. I have always used the guides as handles before. A quick search of the web reveals that replacement brake pads are easy to find, but the shoes are not so plentiful.

Does anyone have a spare? Or a source?

The pads are kind of old anyway. What do people on the list like for replacements?

I know it will not be period correct, but do newer Campy shoes fit the old calipers?
