Neat page Don! Have you figured out any of the markings on the back of the center section yet? Stuff like the different "made in" markings located on different sides etc. Next time I dig through the box of calipers, I'll have to take some pics. I think I had around 8-10 different at one time.

Steven Willis is correct about the weinmann calipers and levers needed for a 1974 raleigh international - plastic bushings, bolts through the back of the caliper - weinmann big-drillium levers - carlton hoods. However, there are subtle variations between the late 1960's calipers and levers and carriers, and the mid-1970's calipers and levers and carriers. Here is a web page that summarizes some of the differences.

I ran into trouble when i bought a mid-late 1960's brakeset that looked EXACTLY like the right one (in a blurry ebay picture), and not a single part of that brakeset would have interchanged with my 1974 bicycle. Gosh!
