I'm after some rear calipers for some R&D. Rougher the better. Don't need slides, just the casting. Obviously looking for cheap rather than usable.

:yeahthat:
I'm trying to over bore the calipers to balance 4-pots. I can now bore them bit getting the seal groove right is tricky. It needs a certain depth / width to give the right pressure on the piston and I need to practice! Hence wanting old calipers.

Ah, like those US guys do/did for the Viper calipers. (same Brembo design)

You're going for 38 or 40mm?

It's just that seal groove :9mm: it's a real challenge!

40mn was a boring tool and a reamer, don't want to buy 38mm versions as well!

Let me have a look in my garage. For some reason I think I've still got an old pair of rears you could have.

Anyone else? I know you stashed them away to rebuild them 'one day'. Be honest with yourself, it won't happen, send them my way instead!

I've got one that I replaced with the group buy one.

You're welcome to it - piston was seized.

Oh and it's painted (red).

Pm me your address if you want it.

Cheers
