MAFAC Raid Brakes - Braze On

***SOLD***

Hello!

Up for sale is a set of MAFAC Raid braze-on brakes. I manage to misplace three of the pivot posts but they are available from Rene Herse for $14/pair. Overall, a very clean set! Bummed I canít use them. Not pictured are the brass shim washers. They will come with the set though.

$100/shipped
____________

Will these attach to a standard Mafac (Racer, Comp, etc.) backing plate, or are they made to be braze-on only?

I'm interested, but don't have an immediate use. I'd just be stockpiling them for the future. So if anyone here needs them more immediately, I'll wait a week or two.

A Racer or Competition backplate wouldnít work because the posts on the Raid farther apart.

I don't see why they wouldn't, unless the bushing doesn't fit.

The two cable-ends of the arms will be farther apart from each other, so the straddle length might need adjusting, but the mechanical advantage otherwise remains the same; I doubt the arms would interfere with each other enough (if at all) to bother; the only remaining issue would be that of how much reach provided by the braze-on post location can be replaced with that of the bridge - of which fortunately at least two sizes are available.

Thanks for the insight.

Although this might be possible anyone attempting to do this needs to keep in mind that using a Racer backplate will reduce tire clearance because the Racer posts are 12mm closer together than the Raid posts.

If you need a backing plate for these, contact me.

BTW, those backing plates that Rene Herse sells are from my Atelier. Jan ran out, I had a boatload of them from the centerpull braze-on conversions I do. I should still have a few.

These are what I sent up to Seattle:

Traded Jan for a bunch of centerpull braze on posts, so it was win-win
