MAFAC "RACER" brakes from DONATOR cycle
Used brake levers from DONATOR cycle

MAFAC central-pull brakes, but they don't match to the rims. Their
arms are way too short. Did I mention the word 'issue'?

Front brake and hefty headlight (original part)
Special old fashioned cable guides mounted on the top tube
To install the brake cable housing I need special cable guides. They came together with the cable stop. It looks waay better than ordinary cable zippers.
Result: It fits, it looks good, it works.
