I have a set for the front of my current bike. Just have to put them on. The rear had a U brake so V's won't fit but I swapped out a set of more modern cross levers as the U was so heavy. What a strange design.

I'm also looking ahead to my next build of mashing two 90's era bikes together. One has a light frame with V's on the back and the other has a Marzocchi bombet suspension fork with the mounts for a disc caliper. Already scoped out the BB7 parts needed.
