Help please!
I need a front right side (offside in UK) disk brake calliper, in the style shown in the picture (or even a tip on where to find one) thanks!

Ahh! Now I see what you mean. I'll have to check as I'm not sure if mine are slightly different i.e. type without the plastic inspection lid. It'll take me a day or three to see them!

Thank you Tom,
Steve has fixed me up temporarily with an older style one (to match the left side of my Frankenbike) but if you are willing to sell yours and it’s in good condition, would you put it on eBay for me?
Delivery would be to London

Hello Marco,

Sorry for my late reply, just to discover that post 1 january, as far as postage etc., has become a different story and i guess not so good reality for the both of us as before: Postage shifting from Euro 1 to Euro 2 zone, and 28,7 % import tax on (second hand) Ebay purchases.

Ouch!

I guess we will have to skip the plan on making it an Ebay sale then, so if you still interested in the Grimeca, please send me an email or PM:

tomros@live.nl

See if i can cut the costs on my parts a bit to relief some of the pain (and my late reply)

And in general: We will have to be more creative to get the things that we want, in the future.

Kind Regards, Tom
Tom

Happy New year Tom,
Steve fixed me up with a temporary earlier design item - then I managed to source the actual later design unit. I appreciate you trying. I have new braided hoses ready too, now: as soon as I have a working (braking!) bike, I will put up for sale a pair of older style calipers.

all the best,
Marco
