    Hello,
    I have a vintage, possibly TOC side pull brake here that I need help identifying. Hope someone out here recognizes this! Please check out the photos. Thank you! IMG_4368.jpg IMG_4369.PNG IMG_4368.jpg IMG_4369.PNG IMG_4365.JPG IMG_4367.JPG

    I don't think they're TOC, I know they were making brakes in the 1930s and were a popular choice in the classic lightweight scene.
    I'll see if I can find some photos.

    Struggling to find photos, something re. 3rd party hosting keeps popping up!!!!
    It seems they were a common fitment on Australian 'Malvern Star' bicycles.
    You may have better luck exploring that avenue.
