There was a time when replacement brake shoes for the post war bikes were difficult to source. I have been involved with the development of replacement shoes and a photograph is shown of the items. They are made of LM25 heat treated and several changes (hopefully improvements) have been made to the originals. They are stiffer than the originals by incorporating stiffening webs. They do not have the small tongues sticking out to take the springs. Instead they have robust through holes. In addition they do not have the dips at the end of the brake linings which allows a longer lining to be use if wished. They will be supplied in pairs only, complete with the spring and metal end plates (H48) fitted. The price, per pair is £80 and you can organise the fitting of your preferred linings if you wish. Alternatively, they can be supplied with linings suitable for touring use or alternatively for racing use if you wish. The price for touring linings fitted is about £12 per shoe.
