Subject: [CR]period brakes

Dear Greg, My personal habit is; 1.If I change a part off that is not repalced with a "correct" part I save the old part to replace if need be in the future. 2. I try to stay period correct, when practical. 3. I like to do what I like unless someone else is willing to pay my bills for me. that is because no pay no play. 4. Have fun, it is not a religious icon.

What's the group wisdom on Weinmann Vainqueur center pull brakes? I am building up a 1972 Paramount P-15, and these were the stock brakes. My experience is that the brakes are on the soft side. I am considering using MAFAC Dural Forge instead because I believe they'll perform better, especially since I weigh 225 lbs. The MAFACs are certainly period correct. -- Greg Thies Vienna, Virginia USA
