I am restoring a late ’60s vintage Peugeot PX-10 ‘Mixte’ bicycle for the widow of my dearly departed friend Jerry Ringerman. It’s nothing of great value to anyone in general; but sentimentally precious to her – and indirectly, me. He custom built it for her when they were courting almost 40 years ago.

Everything on the bike seems usable except the front brake caliper – a Mafac “Racer”. The three main forgings and the pads are fine. But some of the hardware bits (all special) a boogered up.

So, if you have an old Mafac “Racer”caliper laying around your garage, or perhaps installed on some old bike where originality isn’t important, you can help me do something nice for a wonderful old widow. And, of course, I’d be happy to cover the shipping and buy a replacement, or pay you a reasonable price.
