This brake arm is lasercut from an original Norton pattern. It is the standard pattern fitted from the 1930's to the 1950's to most models including Inter and Manx. This item is as per the chromed version (0277b), except it is polished stainless steel rather than the original chromed steel. Although the finish is not as fine as the chromed version, it can be further drilled if required and will not pit in the future (if you like leaving your bike in damp garages!). The second photograph shows an original Gardendgate Manx conical front hub and a chromed version of this brake arm, which was used as the pattern for the lasercut item.
