1956 Malvern Star brake pads question?

Postby MarkGN » Sat Nov 09, 2013 2:32 pm

The brake set up on my 1956 Malvern Star, (2 star) Oppy is labeled 'Monitor Ventura' on the brake system.
The pads are designed to slide out of the metal holder in order to replace them.
My local bike shop has only a generic brand which come as a unit mounted in the metal holder.
In order to keep the bike looking original, I prized out a couple of the new pads in the holders and attempted to slide them into the old holders.
Not much luck. Any idea if there is someone out there who can supply these older style pads?
Regards Mark
