Paragon Mixte Frame Project 2

Rear centre-pull brake with unbranded pulley

Mounting the pulley is the next problem.  Mafac used to make a pulley which attached to the seat bolt, similar to the one in this picture.  Unfortunately I don’t think it will fit the seat bolt on the paragon, as it is made to fit cheaper mass produced frames.

So the next alternative would be to fit a brazed on pulley.  I’ve spent some time looking for a picture of a braze on for a pulley.  It took me a while but I eventually found a modern Rene Herse with one.  Its very simple, which is what attracted me to it in the first place.

So now all I need is a pair of Mafac Dural Forge centre pull brakes. Well at least to sort the brakes out…
