Note:

The bosses on our VR frame will fit all regular long reach centre-pull brakes, Weinmann, Diacompe, Mafac and Compass.
They need the DIA-COMPE Center-Pull To Braze-On Assembly Kit which is sold separately to make it work. The kit comes with replacements springs for Weinmann and DiaCompe brakes. Mafac brakes only need the plates and reuse the existing springs. 

Paul Centre pull brakes WILL NOT work as they need cantilever braze-on brake posts with are larger in diameter than centre-pull brake post.
Cantilever and V- brakes will not fit.
