Subject: [CR]CLB2 Centerpull brakes: Anyone ever see these?

I just bought, via Ebay, a set of CLB2 centerpulls said to be NOS from the 70's (Ebay item 140204087489) 140204087489 [IMAGE] The only info I can find via Google is this, from a mans website description of his Riv Atlantis that has the brakes mounted: "CLB2 Super Luxe centerpulls with titanium straddle wire/return spring. Very cool and unusual. Kool Stop Dura holders with salmon pads"

These are quite beautiful and have opposing castings that I'll have to photograph and link to for explanation and general oogling. I'll try to get that done tomorrow.

I'd very much like to know anything I can about these brakes: Weights, reach, made for?, original hanger style?, made of?. Might someone please oblige?

Thanks, Danny Gonzalez NYC USA
