It has about 20,000 miles. pivots don't have play. It is a single piovt calipers. shimano 600. Around 1984/1985. If anyone is rebuilding or restoring an older bike and wants to use components of that time. Please let me know. PM me.

And yes its for both the front and the back. And if you want I can add the brake handles. The rubber hood is yucky and sticky so you'll need to get a new one.

Only thing I ask is, don't you go and sell it e-bay or some other place just because you got it for free. okay?!

oh one mo' thing. These brake calipers do not work as well as the newer dual-pivot type. So don't expect to have the same braking power.

Very nice of you SmilingCat! Sound like good brakes to put on a commuter.
