The rear brake works pretty good and not a lot of flexing at all for normal riding/braking. The goal was to make the bracket a short as possible and stiff as possible for a temporary install. I problably will ride it until I really need to pull it and have a plate welded in.
Thanks for the picture. This is a good example of "KISS" Keep It Simple Stoopid.

Schwinn had these brakes built with these mounting clamps. I found a few on eBay. Schwinn made brakes for the frame and for the forks. There is a difference in the shape of the clamps. So, look closely for the difference. When looking, they are called "Schwinn Script Caliper Brakes".

Can you tell me, what your definition of a clunker is? so I can better explane what my definition is

Check this- kind of get you a general idea. The term is used loosely in some circles but actually refers to a pretty specific style. At least now days.

Crazy beautiful bike. Looks like the ones Joe Breeze and the boys made when they started the birth of mountain bikes.

I went on a ride this last weekend with the Circle City Ride. Here is the most recent picture. I did replace the cable straps about a year ago. But over all, nothing has changed. This picture was swiped from the post ride review. It was a pleasure to meet with other riders.

Thank you. This was a fun project, and is pleasure to ride. My friend Kevin McNeal. A pro BMX racer from the late 70's. Also enjoyed riding it.
